About us

On 1 October 2022, the three former departments of Mathematics, Informatics, and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) merged to become the TUM School of Computation, Information and Technology (CIT). This move brings together the concentrated research and teaching expertise of these three disciplines under a single roof.

Our Mission Statement

Computation, information and technology enable us to understand and shape the world, to communicate with each other and to gain knowledge from data.


Four departments structure the school scientifically into the areas, Mathematics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.


Clear management and administrative structures ensure optimal internal processes and support the scientific staff.
