Reactor Tour

Not a lecture in the classical sense, but certainly instructive and interesting – which other university has a research reactor in its garden?
We have been organising guided tours for students of our department for some semesters now. We will inform you via the forum (see footer) when new dates are available.

Industry lectures

How are the topics you learn during your studies implemented in industry? To this end, we occasionally invite representatives from industry who offer practical insights into their companies and products. The direct exchange after the lectures is not neglected. In addition, you always learn a lot about the qualifications that companies value in chemists.

By the way, such a lecture can be organized relatively easily. We would be happy to support you in implementing a lecture.

Study – and then?

In this series of lectures, former chemistry students present their career and their current work routine. We want to cover as many career paths as possible, also to show that there is no “one” right path. Entering university via vocational training, going into industry with a Master’s degree or even starting something completely new after your doctorate: Anthing is possible and there are individual opportunities for everyone.
Current dates of the lecture series can be found on our homepage and Social Media.
If you yourself are a graduate of TUM and would like to share your experiences, please contact us! You can reach us at

Scientific Lectures

Talks on current research in various directions take place regularly at our faculty. Often external and international colleagues of our scientists visit us, so that a colourful mixture comes together. The lectures are open to the public, so you can just come and listen. The faculty publishes a current list here.

And more:

In June 2019 a very special guest visited us: The 2017 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry, Prof. Dr. Joachim Frank

In addition to a scientific lecture for the whole faculty, we have jointly organized an additional lecture in which his results are easy to understand for students.
