This Semester’s Focus: Digitalization

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.

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. 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, such as Science 2.0: The Academic InternetOpen Science or #Science: How to Communicate your Science in Social Media and Public Talks within our exclusive course program. Let’s dive into the digital world and explore its potentials!
