News from the Campus
Universities have a key role to play in digitalization and sustainability. Along with their function as innovation incubators and places where students learn about sustainable and digital development, they also act as role models. A new English lecture series will now explore how the Technical University of Munich (TUM) can promote sustainable digitalization and digital sustainability, conduct relevant research, and put the results into practice.
"People should be enabled to make informed decisions," says Katharina Tartler, founder of the university group "VACCtion". The team provides scientifically proven information to those who are skeptical or uncertain about vaccinations. The online lectures are particularly in demand at schools.
Hygiene concept, online studies, remote examinations and extended deadlines: TUM is starting another extraordinary semester.

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has founded a competence center to create a new education program for future vocational school teachers. In intensive interaction with industry and other stakeholders, digIT4.0@TUM will investigate how teachers can optimally convey the digital transformation of professional fields in class.
