Architect and Urban Planner Doris Zoller

"Climate Change Mitigation is the biggest challenge in housing"

TUM Alumna Doris Zoller has always found herself in male-dominated environments. However, for her this is not an issue. As a strategic planner for the Housing Department of the City of Munich, she carries out her duties with seasoned poise.

Honorary Consul Raymond Wittmann

"I'm more than happy to take on this responsibility"

TUM Alumni Raymond Wittmann has lived and worked on three continents. Interacting with people from different cultures is a passion of his. When the Mexican Consulate was looking for an Honorary Consul in Bavaria, he was the one chosen. The fact that he was given this position is due in part to his doctoral studies at TUM, he believes.

Entrepreneur Jan Goetz

“I swapped my academic career for a start-up career overnight”

A global race has broken out over the future of supercomputing. TUM alumnus Jan Goetz is right at the front of the pack. His start-up has assembled the largest team of the foremost quantum computing hardware experts in Europe. His studies at TUM gave him both specialist knowledge and the necessary entrepreneurial skills.

Professor Kerstin Prechel

"If I am able to encourage just one woman, I have already achieved my goal"

TUM Alumna Kerstin Prechel worked her way up to international management, to being a professor and an entrepreneur. And she did so even though neither her parents nor her grandparents went to university. Now her goal is to encourage others to follow in her footsteps.
