The Oskar von Miller Forum is an educational initiative of the Bavarian construction industry.
As an international forum 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. Challenging lectures by high-ranking architects and engineers on current and interdisciplinary topics from construction-related fields are main elements of this programme.
In addition 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 scholarship holders.
Master builders, students and postgraduate students of construction-related faculties with above-average academic performance can apply for accommodation and receive funding through a programme scholarship. This way they 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.
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 invites excellent researchers from the field of construction and building to stay at the Forum as Scientists in Residence. Whilst engaging in a professional and social dialogue with the scholarship holders, the researchers give informative insights into topics related to construction, provide valuable inspiration and are available as mentors.
