Study Life Sciences – study the future!

With a course of study in the field of life sciences, you are opting for a young, interdisciplinary science. Because when it comes to researching the topics of our time, such as securing the world's food supply, the scarcity of fossil fuels, climate change, environmental protection and the decline of species, knowledge from the traditional subjects is no longer sufficient.

Be part of the solution to the problems of this world! At the TUM School of Life Sciences we focus on the potential of interdisciplinary education in current research fields. We conduct research at the interfaces of the subjects and combine modern methodology, digital tools and the excellent technical background of TUM to tackle the challenges of the future.

The life sciences make you fit for the job: By combining sound knowledge from various scientific disciplines, you can acquire an individual profile and are well equipped for the diverse future fields in research and industry.

Insight into studies – What our students say

Agrosystem Sciences

“We get a realistic picture of the challenges in modern agriculture, and we learn, among other things, about the communication difficulties between consumers and farmers.“

Resource Management

 “My goal is to work towards a better future, especially for downtrodden people in India. There is no single solution to the world’s existing problems. It always depends on the ability of humans to collaborate with each other as well as to interact with the environment.“
