Golden and silver jubilarians

Every year, in the course of the General Assembly, the “Bund der Freunde der TUM” (Friends of TUM) honors its long-standing members for their loyalty to the association and to the university itself. In addition to a certificate, the jubilarians are awarded a golden needle for 50 years of membership or a silver needle for 40 years of membership. In 2013, the first members were also honored for 60 years of membership.
