MSNE Project Week (18-22 October, 2021)

The very first "MSNE Project Week" is a digital scientific event being curated by a group of seven MSNE students, for MSNE students and faculty members. This week is planned to be a combination of talks, workshops, discussions, lab tours and social events to encourage the onboarding of our new batch of MSNE students. One goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused and on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder. In addition, we aim to provoke conversations that matter in the field of Neuroengineering. On top of that, visiting and seeing the labs where actual research is happening will considerably contribute to our mission. This will also profoundly connect MSNE students with the topics of Neuroengineering.

MSNE students, MSNE faculty and CoC Neuroengineering already received an invitation and registration link by email.

Venue for most events is room N1135 at TUM Main Campus.
Some events during the project week will additionally be streamed online (*).
Some events during the project week will be online-only (**)
