80 Saudi Arabian students & professors visiting TUM

TUMint hos­ted 80 Sau­di stu­dents and pro­fes­sors for a sci­en­ti­fic visit at TUM
On July 19, a group of 80 young stu­dents and pro­fes­sors from Sau­di Ara­bia enjoy­ed a sci­en­ti­fic visit on Sus­taina­bi­li­ty and Inno­va­ti­on at TUM, orga­ni­zed and run by TUM Inter­na­tio­nal.

After start­ing the day with some wel­co­ming words by Prof. Nil­ges and Prof. Bun­gartz we took the group on an exci­ting TUM Gar­ching Cam­pus tour inclu­ding a stop at the IWB (Insti­tu­te for machi­ne tools and indus­tri­al manage­ment).

To dive even deeper into the topic of sus­taina­bi­li­ty, Tho­mas Los­ter, for­mer CEO of the Munich Re Foun­da­ti­on, gave some insights into the histo­ry, sci­en­ti­fic rese­arch and the Sus­tainable Deve­lo­p­ment Goals. After this gre­at food for thought we con­duc­ted a work­shop on three dif­fe­rent focus topics:

⭐️ Sus­tainable ener­gy
⭐️ Sus­tainable urban mobi­li­ty and
⭐️ Sus­tainable water.

It’s always gre­at to wit­ness inspi­ring ide­as being deve­lo­ped through co-crea­ti­on and bril­li­ant young stu­dents 🔮

We are loo­king for­ward to the next group of Sau­di stu­dents that will visit us!
