Geoinformaticist Jürgen Schopp

“It Was Always about My Abilities Here, Not My Impairment”

For many years, TUM alumnus Jürgen Schopp was focused on proving that, despite his hearing impairment, he could succeed in the hearing world. Time and again, people he encountered recognized his potential. Schopp’s expertise in the field of geographical information ultimately led to his appointment to a leadership position.

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.

Ministerialdirigent ret. Wolfram Ruhenstroth-Bauer

“My Motivation Was to Help People”

For almost forty years, TUM Alumni Wolfram Ruhenstroth-Bauer advocated for refugee and development aid. His commitment far exceeded any official duties and was highly decorated. For him, it was simply humanity at work.

Alumni Donors Evelyn Albrecht-Goepfert and Arnd Albrecht

“We Each Hold the Future in Our Hands”

Evelyn Albrecht-Goepfert and Arnd Albrecht, who are private donors of the TUM University Foundation today, met at Campus Garching during their studies. At TUM they both learnt to consistently put their visions into action.

IN MEMORIAM: TUM Honorary Senator and University Donor Gallus Rehm

“I Am Grateful to TUM by Conviction”

TUM Alumni Gallus Rehm dedicated his life to the art of Civil Engineering with unabated curiosity and fascination. With his innovative ideas he has made a significant contribution to the reputation of his alma mater. In August 2020, Gallus Rehm passed away at the age of 95.
