University elections are in July. Why is that important? What do the elected students do? As a student, do you have the power to change things in a meaningful way? On June 6, we’ll be in the MI magistrale and the Chemistry building lobby to answer your questions about university elections - stop by for a water ice.
This year’s university election will take place on July 5 and you as students are, as every year, invited to cast your vote as well! This election allows you to determine your legal representatives in committees at Schoolevel and TUM-wide level for the next two semesters. Here we have compiled an overview of how and whom you can vote for and why you should vote at all. Why should you vote?

EDIT: Registration is open until Friday, 15.07.2022. Please ensure that you have registered AND handed in the participation fee by then. On 21/07/22 the first Mathenacht will take place at TUM. Here we organize a study and practice night for all who still have to pass the basic lectures of Linear Algebra and Analysis in the subjects Maths, Physics and Computer Science. Beginning at 18:00, practice exercises and tutors from higher semesters will be available in seminar rooms of the MI-Magistrale, sorted by topics.
Students working at the university in addition to their studies currently do not have a collective agreement, which means temporary employment and minimum wage at many German universities. After a campaign was launched by the unions ver.di and GEW at the beginning of 2021, talks on a collective agreement for student assistants such as HiWis, tutors and other student employees were promised towards the end of 2021 by the collective bargaining round of the federal states.

Santa Claus has been on the road for several weeks now. He has already experienced a lot on his trip so far and thanks to your help he was able to open his wheat beer, the hiding place of the witch Asciira and the magical gate to her cave. There he finally finds what he has been looking for for the past two weeks, the gifts that the witch stole from him from the sled.

After Santa successfully uttered the solution word, to Santa’s great surprise, not the stolen gifts flew out of the painting, but a map and 5 golden keys and 3 silver keys. The map apparently leads directly to the magic castle of the evil witch Asciira. Santa Claus had no choice but to follow the map, hoping to find the presents. His journey took him through the darkest jungles of the rainforest, the densest crowds of the Munich subway and the coldest tundras in the world.

On June 24, 2021, the Astronight took place for the second time starting at 19:00. Unfortunately, this event had to be held digitally, but we did our best to offer you an exciting program anyway. So you could experience the event comfortably from your private sofa via YouTube Livestream. Unfortunately, however, there were problems with the sound. Nevertheless, we were able to welcome four speakers, whom we would like to thank for their presentation:

We would like to congratulate Dr. Stephan Krusche on the Ars legendi Prize for excellent university teaching! The prize is awarded every three years since 2011 by the umbrella organisation of the Faculty Days of Engineering and Computer Science (4ING) and is endowed with 25,000 euros. It is intended to highlight the special significance of university teaching for the education of young engineers and computer scientists and to create a career-effective incentive to become involved in university teaching and to promote it beyond one’s own sphere of influence.

Even a global pandemic won’t stop us from publishing the Impulsiv, the magazine of our Student Council. Alas, considering the circumstances, this and (probably) next semester’s issues will be published exclusively online. Despite being the obvious choice, the Corona crisis was explicitly not selected as the main topic of this issue. Although it is by no means a boring subject, we think that we’ve all had enough of it by now.

The ‘digital semester’ has started and already had some changes for us concerning digital teaching. So it will probably come as no surprise to anyone that examinations will also have a ‘digital makeover’, as it is still not clear whether attendance examinations can take place or not. For this reason, last Wednesday, May 13th, the Senate passed an amendment to the General Examination and Study Regulations (APSO) which allows among other things “electronic distance examinations” for the next 2 semesters.

Digitalization has finally reached the faculty. About a month after we successfully moved all of our internal meetings to BigBlueButton, today we held the student assembly informatics online for the first time. Apart from a few audio issues, most of it worked out as planned. In total around 370 people followed the event via YouTube and another 520 people watched via PanOpto. The YouTube view count has since risen to more than 700 views as well.

Have you always wanted to publish your own articles or otherwise work for a magazine? If this is the case, then you’ve come to the right place! We are the magazine of the MPI student council and are looking for you. We are currently ~ 10 members who ensure that an issue with a topic appears twice per semester. Ideas for articles are then collected and written on this topic. Everyone is free to work on other areas that do not fit the topic of the magazine.

According to current information, the summer semester is scheduled to start on 20.04. However, teaching will be completely digital. Here we present the most important tools that will be available. Tools # BigBlueButton # BBB is a videoconferencing system that has been developed specifically for university teaching for over ten years. With functions for slidesharing, surveys, shared whiteboards, fine-tuned rights management, it really does represent all the possibilities that you also have in a seminar room.

In the current situation - I can no longer hear this opening - things are somehow different. TUM is in lockdown, exams are cancelled, home office for the staff and corona holidays for the students. But don’t think that your student council is sitting around twiddling their thumbs all day long. Our work goes on! We are in constant contact with the university regarding the summer semester. Presence teaching will probably not be possible for the time being, so we want to support the transition to a digital semester as much as possible.

Due to the current situation we have to inform you today, unfortunately with a heavy heart, that we have to postpone Unity X until further notice. The important thing is: Unity X is NOT cancelled. We are currently working on finding a suitable alternative date. We will do our best to make Unity possible for you and celebrate the 10th birthday of Unity together.

Because of the current situation, the student council made the decision that our offices in the MI building and in the physics department will remain closed until further notice. This also means that our renting services, the coffee machine and the scripts sale office will be unavailable for now. We as the student council are of course not the only ones taking action. As you probably already heard, lectures and exams are cancelled until the 19th of April.

As a student of math, physics or computer science you want to know what’s going on. You spend thousands of hours on campus, in the faculty and with your fellow students. But how are you supposed to know what’s going on in your “second home” in Garching?? We at the Fachschaft give you all this information. We keep you up-to-date, entertain you and feed your curiosity. Where? Via our social media channels!

Interim lecture halls seem to be in fashion in Garching. While by definition these facilities were only meant to be used on an interim basis, we now have two permanently on campus. In the coming summer semester, we will have a revolutionary continuation: tents in front of the MW building (mechanical engineering). The two giant auditoriums just to the left when entering the MW building are being renovated for fire protection and therefore the students will move into the tents on the 20th of April 2020.

The impulsiv issue 137 is now available in the MI Magistrale. This issue’s topic is “Movies”. You will learn more about movie festivals around Munich, movie soundtracks, the technology that is used and get an impression of what happens behind the scenes of the tufilm. Probably you will want to have a movie night after reading, so we also provide you with some movie recommendations from the student council. As the new Mensa is finally opened, we took a look behind the scenes there in cooperation with the Reisswolf, the mechanical engineering student council’s magazine.

In our university you can encounter various barriers in everyday life. In the older buildings for example, there are no resources to help students with impairment. These include missing Voice announcements in the elevators, broken door openers and floating stairs in the MI building. But also during lectures you can be confronted with challenges. Poorly chosen colours, red laser pointers, acoustics/noise levels, scripts that are not barrier-free, etc. can all be a challenge.
