TUM Ambassador Polly Arnold

„We all have a bias towards men“

Medical couple Inas Abdelaziz and Hossam Sherif

„Medicine is our passion“

TUM Research Alumna Yana Bromberg

„I want to use Bioinformatics to cure diseases“

It would be possible to make a movie about her: born in Ukraine and raised in Brooklyn, Yana Bromberg worked her way up and today she is a globally successful professor. She also has strong ties to TUM.

TUM Ambassador Subhasis Chaudhuri

„I have gained both a research partner and a friend“

Subhasis Chaudhuri enjoys being a guest at TUM. Here, the top researcher in the field of image processing has been able to significantly expand the scope of his pioneering work. Thanks to his research, it will probably soon be possible to touch virtual objects.

Alumni Giving Back

The TUM Family thrives on the mutual support of its members. Our Alumni share their professional and personal experience, organise alumni gatherings and are committed as role models for students and doctoral students. This creates a vibrant intergenerational exchange.

Room for rent?

Do you have an apartment to rent? Why not support the next generation at TUM and rent out your property to students or members of the TUM family? With TUM Living, TUM has been offering its members its own free housing portal since August. Renters can post and manage their ads there themselves and directly address TUM members.

In Sydney invites 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, the TUM alumni met with families on Coogee Beach and dined under the TUM anniversary balloons (Image: Barbara Daxenberger).

Alumni Groups

Regional networking works particularly well where alumni are active locally and take on the organisation of alumni meet-ups. In the past the combination of informal get-togethers and one or two special events per year has proven successful. The latter could be a trip to the theatre or attending a concert together or a guided tour of an alumni’s workplace. Some regional alumni groups meet for social activities, such as fundraising for the construction of a playground, or visiting German or international schools to promote the idea of studying at TUM.

Those alumni registered in your region can be contacted by email via the TUM Community. Let us know if you are interested by sending an email to or set up a group in the Online Community.

Promote an existing Alumni Group:

Make yourself known as the contact person for your local group so that alumni in your area are able to find you. You can also set up a group in the Online Community – the easiest way to communicate with each other.

Let us know your event dates so that we can notify interested alumni in your area.

Bringing a regional alumni network to life:

Your alumni network will be particularly active if you organise regular get-togethers at which members can meet and interact. Or you can go on excursions or participate in Community Events together. Photos and accounts of meetings can be posted in the Online Community. This way other alumni groups can get inspiration from the activities you hosted.

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.

The special feature of the DCAN Network is that it brings together people with complementary needs. Germans who are preparing for a stay in China or are interested in China, and Chinese people who are currently staying in Germany.
