Looking for role models? These alumni earned their doctorates at TUM

Entrepreneur Miriam Haerst

“To be truly creative, you have to think outside the box of tried and true methods”

Even as a schoolgirl, Miriam Haerst loved working with her hands and assisted her father in his hobby workshop. Her joy in experimenting and coming up with ideas has brought her a long way: from Diploma to Doctorate and finally to starting her own company. Her innovation is a 3D printer that can create individual bone implants from plastic.

Top Manager Klaus Richter

"I had people paving the way who really took empowerment seriously"

TUM Alumni Klaus Richter is a proven expert in the field of Global Procurement and an internationally renowned manager. He owes his career to his solid education in engineering and his curiosity for new things.

Entrepreneur Robert Macsics

"Entrepreneurship is right up my alley."

If someone had told him that he would one day launch a company, TUM Alumni Robert Macsics would have declared them crazy. Today, the consummate scientist is heading a Biotech start-up that develops next-generation antibiotics.

University Donor Franz-Robert Klingan

“Our ambition must be to compete with the very best”

Studying Chemistry at TUM and his doctorate under the later President Wolfgang A. Herrmann are the cornerstones of Franz-Robert Klingan’s career. As a university donor, he now helps to ensure that his Alma Mater can continue to confidently face the future.

Entrepreneurs Miguel Molina Romero and Pedro Gómez

“We want to solve humanity’s biggest problems”

For TUM Alumni Pedro Gómez and Miguel Molina Romero, no challenge is too daunting and no goal too ambitious. With their innovative AI-driven MRI technology, they want to bring about fundamental transformations in the food and agricultural industries.

Gender researcher Alina Gales

“Female participation is of vital importance”

Women are not interested in technology? Nonsense, says TUM Alumna and gender researcher Alina Gales. Women are simply less interested in products in whose development they are less represented because they are made by men for men.

Mentor Viktoria Leonhard

"I don't enjoy boring, routine tasks"

TUM Alumna Viktoria Leonhard never misses out on opportunities for further education and is always on the lookout for new projects. She has twice volunteered her experience as a TUM Mentor. Most recently, she started the Alumni Group Stuttgart. And she does all this alongside her management position at Allianz.
