The Technische Universität München was founded in 1868. The main campus of TUM is located in the inner city of Munich close to the old city centre, while many of the institutes are in Munich’s beautiful surroundings. TUM currently hosts approx. 38,000 students in its 13 faculties, about 20 per cent of whom come from abroad.
Munich is the capital of Bavaria, Germany’s southernmost state. Bavaria offers an impressive cultural heritage and many areas of out- standing natural beauty. Munich itself, an 850-year-old city with 1.3 million inhabitants, is one of the major cultural centres in Germany. In addition, Munich also hosts the headquarters and major research and development departments of many high-tech companies, interna- tional as well as German. Many of them cooperate closely with TUM.
The Master’s programme is built on three pillars,
- geodetic, planning and engineering skills,
- methods of land administration, land (use) management, land conflicts resolution and environmental risk management, and
- political, regulatory and socio-economic frameworks,and thus aims to qualify mid-career students in interdisciplinary approaches to land policy, land governance and land management in both the rural and urban context. The lectures focus on land rights, land policy and governance, land economics, land administration, land management, urban and rural development, land conflicts, environmental risk management, GIS, positioning, cartography, participatory planning approaches, management skills, research and study skills. Students are trained in the application of practical meth- ods and tools. Case studies, field trips and lectures given by experts with practical international experience round off the programme. The Master’s programme also includes an internship and an individual research project. Both can be completed either in Germany or abroad.
