Alumni Groups

The TUM family lives through the mutual support of its members. As TUM Alumni, you share your professional and personal experiences, organize alumni meetings, and act as role models for students and doctoral candidates. This creates a lively exchange.

In Sydney, they invite you to a BBQ: Barbara Daxenberger (B. Sc. Mathematics 2010) hosted the second "Dine Around the World" event in Sydney. In sunshine and blue skies, TUM alumni met with families at Coogee Beach and dined under the TUM anniversary balloons (Photo: Barbara Daxenberger).

Founding an alumni group

Regional networking works particularly well when alumni are active locally and take on the organization of alumni meetings themselves.

A combination of informal get-togethers and one or two special events per year has proven successful. The latter can be a joint visit to a theater or concert or a guided tour of an alumni’s workplace.

Some regional alumni groups meet as part of social activities, for example to collect donations for the construction of a playground, or to promote studying at TUM in German or international schools.

Make visible an already existing alumni group:
Make yourself known as the contact person for your local group so alumni in your area can find you. You can also start a group in the online community – the easiest way to communicate with each other.

Notify us of your dates so that we can inform interested alumni in your area.

Bringing a regional alumni network to life:
Your alumni network will be particularly active if you organize regular get-togethers where members can meet and exchange ideas. You can also take trips or participate in community events together. You can post photos and reports from meetings in the online community so that other alumni groups can be inspired by your activities.

Further Alumni Initiatives

In 2002 TUM established the first foreign branch of a German university in Singapore: the German Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) – TUM Asia Pte. Ltd., a private enterprise subsidiary of TUM.
