TUM is one of the best universities in Europe. Excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinarity and talent promotion are its hallmarks. In addition, it has strong alliances with companies and scientific institutions around the world. TUM is one of the top three universities of excellence in Germany. In international and national rankings it regularly achieves excellent results. In 2019, for example, it was awarded the title of "Excellence University" for the third time in a row.
The new website has now also gone online, fittingly for a university of excellence. The TU relies on the Enterprise Content Management System TYPO3 for a variety of different websites.
in2code GmbH supported the TU Munich in the conception, design and implementation of the complete TYPO3 project. Right from the start, the company used the latest technologies and approaches such as Responsive Design, Mobile-first, SCSS (Compass) and Extbase.
In order to facilitate the study search for prospective students, the TYPO3 studyfinder was already integrated on the start page as a possible entry point. With more than 150 study courses and 70 start-ups every year, a prominent and structured search is indispensable.
In order to make it as easy as possible for future applicants, the detailed pages of the study programmes are delivered with important information such as contact details, frequently asked questions and answers and application and admission details.
In addition to a stronger internationalization, the structure now focuses on the actual content of the website. Content is to be presented optimally for the actual target groups. Young visitors in particular will be consciously addressed.
On the start page there are a number of new elements that are intended to emotionally enhance and visually highlight the handling of the website.
In order to make the website lively, social media and videos with brand new content are also increasingly integrated.
