    There are many people who would like to meet a true Nobel Prize winner – and every year, there is an opportunity to do so in Lindau, where selected young scientists from all over the world meet up with top researchers at a conference.

    Recently, Andreas Barthelme became a YouTube star – unintentionally. A video featuring the TUM-scientist was viewed more than 2.1 million times in quite a short time: a blackboard had collapsed during a lecture, closely missing him. In an interview for TUMstudinews, Barthelme talks about why this was a blessing in disguise.
  • Here’s to good collaboration:

    Useful tools while studying

    Pursuing a university education means more than working alone in a cubicle somewhere. It often requires working together: sharing data for an assignment, writing a project report or discussing the current status of a project via video conference.
