Steering Committee Digitization Studies and Teaching

With the goal of dynamizing the digitization process in study and teaching, the Steering Committee for Digitization of Study and Teaching was established in April 2021 by the CIO and the Vice President for Study and Teaching.

The Steering Committee consists of 7 members from the IT, the TUM Center for Study and Teaching, and a representative for the departments and schools. The steering committee receives project ideas, prioritizes them, and convenes a project group if the evaluation is positive.


  • Markus Haggenmiller – Central Information Technology (ZIT), Head
  • Sebastian Krüger – Central Information Technology (ZIT)
  • Alexander Pohl – Digital Transformation Officer (DXO)
  • Sandra Grundmann – Campus Management Team
  • Claudia Philipps – TUM School of Computation, Information and Technology
  • Kathrin Dressel – TUM Center for Study and Teaching, Head
