Elite Master's Program in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics

The Elite Master's Programm in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics (TMP) is offered together with LMU Munich. As a student of TMP you may take any of the courses offered by our Physics Department.

Physics and mathematics are corner stones of our modern knowledge-based society. The elite program offers students both an in-depth and broad education in theoretical and mathematical physics. Two aspects are of particular importance:

  • The interdisciplinarity between modern theoretical physics and mathematics.
  • The transdisciplinarity, i.e. the transfer of knowledge from one discipline to a related one.

For a complete description of the curriculum, the application procedure, and administrative questions on the TMP program please refer to the colleagues at LMU.

Enrolment at TUM and access to TUMonline

Since the TMP program is a joint program of LMU, TUM and FAU, you are automatically enrolled at TUM too.

LMU Admissions Office notifies TUM Admissions Office and you should have received a TUM student ID number (Matrikelnummer) and a TUM login – if not, please contact

With your TUM login you can access TUMonline for course and exam registration. Keep in mind that course registration is optional but useful to get current information such as schedule changes or access to lecture material provided via e. g. moodle. However, exam registration is mandatory!

Set up your e-mail address in TUMonline in order to receive messages sent via TUMonline!

Course Catalog

Given that as TMP student you are a regular student at TUM, you may in general take all modules offered. Of special interest are probably our special courses for Master students.

The catalog of modules included in the TMP program is managed by the colleagues at LMU and regularly published in the TMP wiki.

The following table lists the modules from the catalog offered by TUM Physics Department (and as far as they were brought to our attention the TUM Mathematics Department) with courses during the semester

Official lecture and exam dates are published in TUMonline. Please check the TUMonline entry.

Module ID Title CP

To export the schedule of courses associated with the selected modules (default group, normally this is only the lecture and not the exercises).

Exam Registration

Please keep in mind that you need to register for exams in TUMonline – use "Exam Registration" on your Workplace (klick on your name in the top right corner) and use "Register (ALL TU Muenchen exams)" to search for the module number (e. g. PH1001).

Regular registration deadline is January 15 in winter semester and June 30 in summer semester. See exam periods and registration deadlines for more details. If you missed the deadline and need to late-register please check with the examiner and then contact giving your TUM Matrikel number, and the exam number and date (you might use the late-registration form).

Master’s Theses at Physics Department of TUM

You may do your Master’s Theses at Physics Department of TUM. You are free to ask any of our professors if they can offer a topic – this list here is not complete. For administrative questions please check with the colleagues at LMU.

Of special interest for you are probably the theory groups:
