Transferable Skills Training

The TUM Graduate School offers a wide range of courses that support you as a doctoral candidate to further develop your transferable skills and expand your interdisciplinary experience. The courses are designed as an additional qualification during your doctorate and offer valuable orientation for your next career steps. 

All courses offered in the winter semester 2019/20 are listed chronologically. Thus, you will get a quick overview of our exclusive course program. Under each course title, you will find detailed information about the content of the courses as well as the course registration.

Please pay close attention to our terms and conditions of participation.

Important Changes

From now on, our courses will open for registration gradually during the semester. This means that it is possible to register 8 weeks prior to a course start via DocGS. Please have a look at our website to see our full program or download our flyer. By subscribing to the TUM-GS Newsletter, you will be regularly informed about the opening of new courses.

The number of courses you can book is limited to 4 courses (including bookings on the waiting list). Attending the Semester Opening Talk does not count towards the course limitation. This means that you can book the Semester Opening Talk and up to 4 courses of our exclusive transferable skills program per semester. Once you have reached your limit, any additional courses will be marked as "not bookable". 

Should you be unable to attend the course, it is possible to cancel your registration free of charge up to four weeks prior to the course start. We kindly ask you to honor this deadline as your fellow doctoral candidates may be on the waiting list hoping for an opening.

We appreciate your cooperation and wish you a successful start into the winter semester 2019/20!

This Semester’s Focus: Digitalization

Digitalization brings fundamental changes to our lives, the world of work as well as to the way we learn. It offers many possibilities, just like faster communication, global networks or easier access to research data. But it also brings risks and fears to bear. Not only newspaper articles about breached data e.g. make those risks visible.

Due to the importance and the ubiquity of this topic, we will put a focus on digitalization during the winter semester 2019/20. We would like to encourage and enable our doctoral candidates to use the potentials digitalization has to offer, but also to be aware of its risks and dangers.

Therefore the TUM Graduate School will offer several courses on digitalization within our exclusive course program. To cover the various aspects of digitalization, the topics will range from basic introductions to specified and advanced workshops.

Let’s dive into the digital world and explore its potentials!
