Herzlichen Glückwunsch zur Klasse 2020!

We may have come from different corners of the world and traversed different time zones, national and cultural spaces, but our passion to better the world and penchant for seeking new knowledge and learning experiences brought us together here at TUM Asia. From once a doe-eyed student, we have since grown, and emerged with deeper knowledge, newer skills and broader perspectives that will infinitely sail us through our next exciting adventure. Before we blaze a trail, let us reminisce the good times we’ve had at TUM Asia.

Congratulations once again to class of 2020.

Stay tuned virtually to celebrate the Graduating Class of 2020
