Donor and honorary senator Farhad Farassat
"We knew that we could find a solution together"
Farhad Farassat immediately after his studies established his own company, which soon became the market leader for microwelding equipment used in chip manufacturing. Today, around 40 years later, he is using the proceeds from the sale of his company to support students at TUM through the Deutschlandstipendium.
Alumni and challenges
How do You do this?
Four alumni tell us about extraordinary situations in their lives and how they dealt with them.
TUM Honorary Senator Robert Schmucker
″I am grateful for my life″
Robert Schmucker is one of the very few rocket experts in the world who has worked with so many different types of rockets. Precisely this wide range is what is important to him. Professionally, he has always been demanding, but privately in contrast, he is rather modest. This makes his commitment all the greater.
Architect Werner Grützner
“Responsible service was the key to success”
TUM Alumni Werner Grützner is looking back on an accomplished career as a architect. The foundation for this success is having studied at TUM. As a pre-mortem bequest he recently left a part of his study materials to the TUM.Archive.
