TUM Women stories

Sustainability expert Nikita Jayswal

"I am a problem solver"

There’s no climate demonstration and no Earth Day taking place without TUM alumna Nikita Jayswal. With admirable power, the young engineer is avidly campaigning for greater sustainability. Which not rarely meets with resistance – and spurs her on all the more.

Mentoring Tandem Tsvetana Marinova and Samiddha Mukherjee

"Ours is an extraordinary friendship"

It's a match on all counts: Mentor Tsvetana Marinova and mentee Samiddha Mukherjee are indeed a perfect team. The two TUM Alumnae have developed a friendship that goes far beyond a conventional mentorship. Together, they are now launching an event series at TUM.

Podcast with TUM Alumna Dr. Viktoria Leonhard (in German)

"To lead well, you have to like people."

The job entry has been successfully completed and now you can move on. How do you get your first management position? What qualifications are crucial? What does the daily routine of a manager look like? And is leadership actually fun?

Podcast with TUM Alumna Marwa El Hefnawy

"You're personal skills are important, too."

For anyone moving from academia to an industrial company, it is important to understand how personnel selection procedures work in industry and which qualifications are particularly valued here.

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. Her time at TUM further honed her knack for networking and her readiness to embrace new ideas.

"The passion for the idea has to always be greater than the fear of the risk"

Entrepreneur Sofía Ramírez Bernini

TUM Alumna Sofía Ramírez Bernini aspires to help shape the future of her Caribbean homeland and the world. With her start-up, she is developing technologies to produce energy in a sustainable and carbon-negative way.

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.

Past talks
The annual Women of TUM Talks inspire and encourage. They offer TUM women a stage and thus make role models visible. And they encourage them to pursue their own goals.
