We look for students whose personal characteristics suggest that they will make the most of the opportunities at CDTM, both in academic and non-academic areas. We also seek those whose presence will enhance the experience of other students. Therefore, we value characteristics such as motivation, involvement, interpersonal skills, entrepreneurial aptitude, leadership quality, creativity, analytical skills, and open mindedness.
The admissions committee looks for excellence – applicants with high academic achievements, strong motivation, and leadership potential. High academic potential is normally reflected in excellent academic records. Motivation and leadership is usually shown in relevant experience, your essays, and recommendations.
Students have to be registered for a Diploma-, Bachelor- or Master-level studies program at LMU or TUM. Most of the CDTM students come from the fields of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Management. Students of other related fields are also highly encouraged to apply.
You should have completed (or are this term completing) your undergraduate studies (e.g. Vordiplom) and your Abitur (Abitur, A-Level, International Baccalaureate or High School equivalent) with above-average results.
If you are in a Bachelor program (and do not get a Vordiplom) you need to have completed your third semester before starting at the CDTM. We consider a semester completed at the end of the lecture period and before the Trend Seminar course starts in the semester break.
