Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI)

The Munich Data Science Institute (MDSI) has been TUM’s central interface for data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) since 2020. As an integrative research institute, we bring together researchers from different fields.

TUM Think Tank

Founded in 2022, the TUM Think Tank fosters societal and political change by combining theory and practice. It utilizes technological and scientific progress at TUM and the Hochschule für Politik München (HfP) and builds bridges between the social sciences and technical disciplines. The goal of the TUM Think Tank is to create interdisciplinary learning and experimentation spaces in which actors from the world of science, civil society, public policy and the private sector can work together on concrete issues to develop proposed solutions and instruments to address urgent problems.

Women of TUM

Women of TUM is a rapidly growing, living network which connects women with one another – 15,468 female students, 110 female professors and more and more alumnae every year. This lively network is quickly spreading and bringing together women across the boundaries of continents, generations, hierarchy levels and specializations.

In the Women of TUM network, women are forming a community in which they mutually support and inspire one another, regardless of their academic disciplines or industry sectors. Here women also find a unique platform which makes them more visible to the public, anchors the role of the woman in the working world and thus establishes role models for future generations.
