TV-feature on NavVis in TUM portrait by Bayerischer Rundfunk
There are more than 400 universities in Germany. So the question where to get your degree is not an easy one. The program CAMPUS on BR-Alpha set out to shed light on the German educational landscape. In each episode of its series "Hochschul-Visitenkarten", a university or school of applied sciences is introduced.
