About us

With 1,500 students, around 200 scientists and 28 professorships, the Department of Architecture at the TUM School of Engineering and Design (ED) is pursuing a research-oriented teaching approach in cooperation with public organizations and companies — embedded in the excellent living and research environment of the greater Munich area.
Our central task is to sustainably improve teaching and research in our field and to develop strategies for the transformation of our built environment. Starting from the core activity of designing, we synthesize, contextualize and design complex spatial solutions. Our vision is to successfully integrate design practice into research.
