There are many ways to support the Technical University of Munich: Advancing scientific topics and research is just as possible as supporting students or scientists. As an alumni, you are cordially invited to contribute your knowledge to your alma mater. If your heart beats more for culture, you will find suitable programs and events that deserve your support. New and exciting projects are constantly emerging in all areas, even at short notice. The opportunities to get involved with the university are almost unlimited. We will be happy to inform you and look forward to hearing from you!

Quick help and community

Many projects and student initiatives require financial support for their implementation. For us, enabling and promoting these is just as much a part of talent promotion as making it possible to attend conferences. In addition, it is important to us to strengthen the TUM community by supporting cultural events. Be part of it!
