Career

Between 1981 and 1987 Wolfgang Wüst studied civil engineering at TUM. Subsequently he stayed on at TUM to work as a research assistant in the Department of Traffic Route Engineering, receiving his doctoral degree in 1991.

This was followed by a number of leadership roles: in the state highways departments of Weiden in der Oberpfalz and Regensburg; at the Supreme Building Authority in the Bavarian Department of the Interior, responsible for transport and building; and at the Highway Authority of Southern Bavaria. In 2009 he was offered a teaching assignment at TUM to lecture on highways and the environment.
