Read new image brochure "A Global Hub of Knowledge Exchange" onlineHow is TUM reinventing itself

Who we are, what will be driving us in the future, and what it is that is defining us with: TUM's new image brochure "A Global Hub of Knowledge Exchange" shows it all with exciting research projects, insights into our future organizational structure, and with stories of visionaries and makers, of entrepreneurs and pioneers.

From the editorial by President Thomas F. Hofmann:

All top universities have one thing in common in these turbulent times: either they continue to develop, or they fall behind in the competition.  For the Technical University of Munich - our TUM - this means: If we want to be even more successful tomorrow, we must position ourselves today so that we can master the rapidly changing challenges of this world. That is why change will remain our only constant in the future!

With this brochure, we want to inform you why and how we are repositioning ourselves - and take you on an exciting journey into the future of our university.  Because the DNA of TUM is getting an "update" 150 years after its foundation.
