  • Editorial
    2018 marks a very special anniversary for us here at TUM. 150 years ago, Ludwig II, King of Bavaria, founded our university. With gratitude, we remember all those people who have shaped TUM and enriched our society with their curiosity and inventive spirit over the years since 1868. What started out as a polytechnic school has grown into one of the world’s top-ranking universities.
  • Plant Immunity

  • How Plants Fight Back
    Stefanie Ranf has discovered a mechanism that helps plants detect disease-causing agents such as bacteria and defend themselves against them.
  • Renewable Energy Systems

  • Energy Transition – Efficiency Gains through Mathematics
    With the help of advanced mathematical methods, Christoph Hackl develops new control technology for electric vehicles and renewables, such as wind energy systems.
  • Machine Learning

  • Machine Learning
    How does machine learning work and what impact does it have in research? We explore the key points.
  • Remote Sensing

  • Watching Cities Grow
    Highly precise computational models of the world’s megacities could help to improve urban planning. Working towards this goal, Xiaoxiang Zhu is combining petabytes of earth observation satellite data and social media data for the first time.
  • Medical Imaging

  • Getting a Diagnosis from Pixels
    Bjoern Menze is training computer programs to “learn” how to detect brain tumors and propose individualized treatments.
