TUM Presidential Student Lunch – talk to the President

President Thomas F. Hofmann has introduced the TUM Presidential Student Lunch to promote the uncomplicated, direct exchange with students from all departments. The Technical University of Munich would be nothing without its curious and cosmopolitan students. They generate the pulse of the university. Making studies at TUM a unique learning and life experience requires an interactive and trusting relationship between teaching staff and students no less than a culture of appreciation and the open exchange of opinions and ideas with the younger generation.

Only if we value their creative input, their unique perspectives on the future and foster their active participation in shaping our teaching reform will TUM continue to shape the lives and professional careers of future generations worldwide as a leading international teaching institution.“President Thomas F.
