For its University Impact Rankings, the highly respected British magazine Times Higher Education (THE) assesses the impact of universities in various categories. The score in the category Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure reflects the number of research publications in fields with a big impact on sustainable innovations such as energy, Industry 4.0 and smart cities.

In Digital Leaders in Higher Education, it ranks fifth and in the major Times Higher Education Rankings, which assess the overall performance of universities, TUM is number one in the European Union.
