This questionnaire-game is still as worthwhile as it was in the days of Marcel Proust. Here, we have answers by Franziska Ochsenfarth, student representative in the TUM Senate and the TUM Board of Trustees.
Franziska Ochsenfarth is a student of Mechanical Engineering, in the third semester of her Master’s studies, which she started after completing her Bachelor’s studies at TUM. She became aware of her enthusiasm for technical problems while she was still at school – thanks to project work in the field of Mechatronics.
Soon after taking up her course of studies, she became involved in the student representation at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering – and then for the entire university. She likes to spend her free time in the mountains, with skiing in winter and hiking or visiting mountain lakes during the rest of the year.
