Elite Master's Program in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
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.
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 email@example.com giving your TUM Matrikel number, and the exam number and date (you might use the late-registration form).
