Mission Statement

The TUM International Graduate School of Science and Engineering (IGSSE) is an interdisciplinary research institution of the Technische Universität München (TUM). It supports new, strong links between the natural and medical sciences with engineering, achieved via the graduate school´s training concept, emerging from an excellent research environment.

IGSSE promotes the development of young scientists at TUM in terms of both research and personality. Although the scientific excellence of every graduate's individual doctoral research and thesis is pivotal, IGSSE offers a doctoral training program that generates considerable added value for its members: Research experience across disciplinary borders, international networking, entrepreneurial know-how, and personality development. The program prepares IGSSE Alumni to pursue careers at an executive level in international research and industry.

Interdisciplinarity

Based on TUM´s outstanding disciplinary expertise, the IGSSE doctoral training is effectively interdisciplinary and team-oriented. With on the one hand specilization and expertise in their discipline, competences regarding openness and curiosity towards other disciplines, IGSSE doctoral candidates earn valuable qualifications for their future career.

International

International graduates, guest researchers and groups at TUM’s international partner institutions can join IGSSE’s Project Teams. The Graduate School promotes collaboration in all ranks through financial support for doctoral symposia, summer schools and conferences. A research assignment abroad is compulsory for all doctoral candidates.

Intersectoral

IGSSE is committed to open up fundamental research to industrial and medical applications and supports industry partnerships (e.g. scholarships) as well as research co-operations (e.g. project teams).

Diversity

IGSSE meets the challenge of gender and diversity in science and engineering with special regard to supporting women. Currently, 40% of our scholarships have been assigned to female doctoral candidates and extral funds are available to support the families in emergency situations. Also, the IGSSE Fellowship has been escpecially designed to strengthen female researchers in their early stage careers.
