Alumni of TUM
The circle of TUM Alumni includes all those who have earned a degree from the Technical University of Munich. This includes Bachelor students just as much as habilitated students. Throughout their lives, they remain connected to their Alma Mater and are an integral and highly valued part of the university family. The term ‘alumnus’ derives from Latin and means ‘pupil’.
