TUM-GS focuses on serving the doctoral candidates at TUM and providing them with optimal tailor-made support. The promotion of science through top-class qualification offerings and the best possible services is an ongoing quality aim. All of the processes at TUM-GS are subject to quality management and continuous improvement.
For academic work and the best career opportunities after completing a doctorate, young academics need qualifications that go beyond merely writing an academic project. More and more complex research subjects require an interdepartmental, interdisciplinary and team-oriented approach as well as extensive active participation in an excellent academic environment. TUM-GS and its Graduate Centers support this through a large number of subject-specific, subject-related and transferable qualification measures and offerings. In addition, TUM-GS supports personal network-building among doctoral candidates in various disciplines.
There are many paths and steps that lead to a doctorate. From applying to a doctoral program to completing it, the TUM-GS provides doctoral candidates with services to help them structure and efficiently design their doctoral projects. That includes advice on creating a supervision agreement, introductory seminars, peer mentoring, and career orientation events. We work according to the guidelines of good scientific practice and in line with best international standards.
Scholarship and research have long gone beyond national boundaries. Handling complex questions and solving global problems requires people to work together on international and intercultural teams. Supporting and using a diverse range of talents, as well as ensuring equal access to scholarship and research, are important requirements here. With its offerings, TUM-GS actively supports the mobility of doctoral candidates as well as the participation and inclusion of everyone in the academic community, regardless of gender, nationality, religion and worldview, disability/chronic illness, age or sexual orientation.
