Welcome! We are the elected representatives of the doctoral candidates at the TUM School of Engineering and Design. We see ourselves as contact persons for all doctoral candidates at our School. Due to the different doctoral paths and the diversity of personalities at our School, a variety of challenges and problems can arise, which we address and try to solve together. So if you have any problems or suggestions related to your doctoral status at the School, do not hesitate to contact us.

Representation in official committees

One of our main tasks is to represent the doctoral students of our School in official committees, to promote their interests there, and to make proposals on their behalf. All our votes and statements in the committees are based on a common consensus among us doctoral representatives, which is developed in advance in internal discussions.

Amongst others, we are mainly active in the following committees as representatives:

Voting representation in the TUM Graduate Council (3 Votes)

  • Ayesher Müller-Wolfertshofer
  • Artur Toshev
  • Deniz Köse

Voting representation on the board of the Graduate Center Engineering & Design (4 Votes)

  • Artur Toshev
  • Deniz Köse
  • Magdalena Peksa
  • Marco Hölzel

Representation in the School Council Engineering & Design (guest seat)

Socializing and networking between doctoral candidates

We see it as another central task for us to facilitate and promote the exchange between doctoral students of our School. The circumstances under which candidates do their doctorate at our School and the experiences they gain are very diverse. An exchange among each other can therefore be very valuable and also open up new perspectives for the assessment of the own situation as well as the own development. For this purpose, we regularly organize events for socializing and networking. We will inform you about the details and how to register via the known channels.
