Architect and Urban Planner Doris Zoller

"Climate Change Mitigation is the biggest challenge in housing"

Founder and AI expert Florian Grigoleit

"Just give it a try!"

"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.
