On the occasion of International Women's Day 2021, the Technical University of Munich launches a program to promote female lecturers and provides information about the history and situation of women at our university.

Support program for female lecturers

TUM takes equal career opportunities for all genders seriously. While the share of women professors has already been raised, the share of women among lecturers and honorary professors is only 5%. To counteract this significant underrepresentation, TUM launches a new support program for female lecturers. This program will assist new women lecturers with their teaching and their recruitment will be more structurally embedded. Please find more detailed information about the program in the TUM press release.

History and situation of women at TUM

TUM's Equal Opportunity Office dedicates a new website to all women at TUM (German only). It provides information on the history of women in academia at TUM since 1905 and portrays outstanding female scientists. Also, the website is about the structural promotion of women at TUM and its history.
