TUM academics publish top-quality work
Top Position in the Nature Publishing Index
The Nature Publishing Group’s journals are regarded as ranking among the most prestigious specialist publications. Academics publish groundbreaking results in them, particularly in the natural sciences. In contrast, few engineering topics are covered.
“The excellent position achieved indicates that as a technical university we are not just outstandingly well positioned in engineering, but also in the natural sciences and medicine and our academics enjoy great international acclaim,” remarked Wolfgang A. Herrmann, TUM President.
Many of the TUM articles published in Nature were produced by physicists and scientists from the two excellence clusters, the “Center for Integrated Protein Science” and the “Origin and Structure of the Universe”.
