Awards

Every year, the TUM School of Engineering and Design awards prizes for the best scientific work in all disciplines. Outstanding achievements in undergraduate studies are promoted and awarded just as much as excellent final theses or special doctorates. In addition to scientific expertise, social significance of the research contributions also count. The funding for these prizes and awards comes from both foundations and industry.

The nominations are usually made via the portal https://portal.ed.tum.de/

The aim of the Maurer Söhne Foundation Award is to reward outstanding bachelor's and master's theses as well as doctoral dissertations in the field of engineering dynamics.

Based on the purpose of the foundation, which is the non-profit promotion of research and science, in particular basic research in the field of dynamics in the area of structural engineering, the award is intended for theses that deal with basic research in the field of structural dynamics. Although a clear reference to application or practice in the sense of problem-oriented basic research is desirable, the focus should be on dealing with elementary issues when selecting the thesis.

The award is endowed with 2,000 € and is presented by the Bund der Freunde der TUM e.V. on the recommendation of the TUM School of Engineering and Design. The prize money is provided by the Maurer Söhne Foundation.
