Early-career researchers at MCQST are conducting cutting-edge research in quantum science and technology. The START fellowship program supports them to develop their own projects and take steps toward building an independent career.
High up in the Alps, Dr. Homa Ghasemifard collected data to better understand climate change, identifying major pollution sources on the European continent – using an environmental research station that used to be a luxury hotel.
In the QS World University Rankings by Subject TUM ranks among the 25 best universities worldwide in five subjects. TUM is also among the top 50 in seven other subjects. In the overall subject groups of Engineering & Technology and Natural Sciences, TUM is ranked number 28th each.
Relatively minor support with the application process is enough to help families with lower educational attainment secure childcare places. A new study shows that mothers subsequently spend more working hours and that the earnings gap between mothers and fathers becomes narrower. A causal link has now been demonstrated for the first time in the case of women with relatively low school certificate who are particularly disadvantaged in the job market.
An international research team has discovered a previously unknown chamber in the Cheops pyramid of Gizeh. As early as 2016 measurements had given reason to assume the existence of a hidden hollow space in the vicinity of the chevron blocks over the entrance. Now scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have used ultrasound and endoscopy to make an important contribution to confirming this assumption. The status of the Egyptian pyramid as one of the best investigated structures in the world makes this find particularly important.
