And the Hochschule für Politik München (HfP) – Bavarian School of Public Policy will offer the first bachelor's degree program in Political Science under the sponsorship of TUM.
Digitalization and automation are changing our working environments: Computers control production processes, robots handle all kinds of tasks, humans and machines must work together closely. The 2016 Hannover Trade Fair, the leading industrial trade fair worldwide, will showcase prominent research projects of scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Among the highlights is an assembly workstation equipped with the latest communication technologies.
Nine scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) won out in the latest round of ERC grants. The projects receiving funding are in the disciplines Medicine, Physics and Informatics and deal with a highly varied range of topics such as investigation of autoimmune diseases, innovative algorithms and bio-nanotechnology.
According to the Nature Index, released today by the Nature Publishing Group, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of the four best German universities in terms of research in the natural sciences. And it is the only technical university out of these top German institutions. Overall, TUM comes in at 73rd in the world. The ranking is based on publications in key international science journals.
The rich worlds created in the TV series “Game of Thrones” (GoT) inspired a computer science class at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany: As part of their class project the students developed applications that scour the web for data on the Game of Thrones and crunch the numbers. They then put together a website that reports which characters are most likely to die in the upcoming sixth season of the TV series.
Living cells must alter their external form actively, otherwise functions like cell division would not be possible. At the Technical University of Munich (TUM) the biophysicist Professor Andreas Bausch and his team have developed a synthetic cell model to investigate the fundamental principles of the underlying cellular mechanics.
Professor Thomas Becker of the Chair of Brewing and Beverage Technology at Technical University of Munich (TUM) on the discussion surrounding the Reinheitsgebot – the German beer purity law –, the latest research projects and the beer of tomorrow.
Approximately two million years ago a star exploded in a supernova close to our solar system: Its traces can still be found today in the form of an iron isotope found on the ocean floor. Now scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), together with colleagues from the USA, have found increased concentrations of this supernova-iron in lunar samples as well. They believe both discoveries to originate from the same stellar explosion.
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has announced appointments to seven new professorships for the Hochschule für Politik München (HfP) – Bavarian School of Public Policy.
