If you run across Philip Häusser at TUM, you might have the feeling of knowing him from somewhere. From television? The young TV host has his own series in “Galileo” (ProSieben), called “High Speed Heros”. In everyday life, Häusser is a doctoral student at the TUM’s Department of Computer Vision in Garching. In a studinews-interview, he talks about his “double life”.

Free board and lodging throughout a course of studies? A privilege for those who were able to get a scholarship of the Maximilianeum Foundation. Each year, a maximum of eight new students are selected – and Annika Möslein is one of them. She is a student of Engineering Science at TUM. For studinews, she speaks about her everyday life at the Foundation and about her dream of flying into space.


Traveling in a capsule

“That was great!” – Mariana Avezum is thrilled. The computer scientist and her “WARR-Hyperloop”-team at TUM, which consists of 20 members, recently returned from College Station (Texas). The reason of their stay: participating in a design competition for a new type of high-speed transport system at the Texas A&M University.

“überkochen” is the name Constanze Buckenlei, Marco Kellhammer and Moritz von Ulardt gave their cooking-trolley. They developed the prototype in the scope of the project “Schule designen” (designing school) within the Master’s course of Industrial Design. The idea is to address the topic of food and nutrition in classrooms in a playful manner.

Jacqueline Wagner arrives for her interview right on time. For the 23-year-old student from Neufahrn, it is of vital importance to be fast, to be on time – not so much regarding her first Master’s semester of Biochemistry at TUM, but because she is a firefighter at the voluntary fire department Neufahrn.

Workshop at the Carl von Linde-Akademie:

Less stress!

Tests, an internship report, preparing presentations and doing a part-time job… it can get quite stressful. According to a study by the TK, more than half of the students in Germany are regularly stressed out – sometimes so much that their study progress suffers. “Stress lass nach” is a new workshop at the Carl von Linde Akademie. Kirsten Bannert explains what it is about.
