The Oskar von Miller Forum is an educational initiative of the Bavarian construction industry.
As an international centre where people from diverse construction-related disciplines can meet and exchange ideas, the Oskar von Miller Forum contributes exciting ideas and inspiration to the education of a new generation of civil engineers, environmental engineers and architects at the Technische Universität München through its programme. Scientists from all over the world are invited to the Forum to enrich and realise the programme and life at the Oskar von Miller Forum in direct dialogue with the students.
Master builders, students and postgraduate students of construction-related faculties with above-average academic performance are given temporary accommodation at the Oskar von Miller Forum and are supported in their pursuit of excellence. The Oskar von Miller Forum considers technical expertise and social skills to lie at the heart of excellence. The ability to recognise connections, personal initiative, staying power, a sense of responsibility and specialist knowledge, these are some of the characteristics that are of central importance. Social skills, such as the ability and willingness to communicate, to respond appropriately in any given situation, and reliability in one’s dealings with others also play an important role in the cultivation of excellence.
Challenging keynote and evening lectures by high-ranking architects and engineers on current and interdisciplinary topics from construction-related fields are main elements of the programme.
As an educational initiative of the Bavarian construction industry the Oskar von Miller Forum provides new impetus for the training of engineers at the Faculties of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering as well as Architecture at the Technical University of Munich and students of the Municipal Technical College of Structural Engineering.
The programme of the Oskar von Miller Forum is dedicated to the university education of engineers in the field of construction at the Technische Universität München. With an interdisciplinary and international orientation, it supports students in their pursuit of excellence in both their own field of specialisation and in related disciplines.
The Oskar von Miller Forum contributes exciting ideas and inspiration to the education of a new generation of civil and environmental engineers, architects and master builders through its excellent programme, while at the same time offering them temporary accommodation.
