Do you want to hack state-of-the-art technology and create awesome new products? The interdisciplinary lab course THINK. MAKE. START. within the Tech Talents programme offers the environment, support and the people to realize this.
Together with other master students, you develop and build innovative products in just 14 days. You collaborate in interdisciplinary teams consisting of master students from computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, business and other faculties. Experts from industry and research will provide you with the necessary knowledge of methods as well as technology and will support you in developing a business concept.
To build the prototypes you get access to the 1,500 sqm high-tech workshop MakerSpace. On the last day, the demo day, all teams will present their projects in front of a jury and pitch the concepts to guests from industry, other start-ups and university.
The application procedure for the current THINK.MAKE.START. is closed. The next application period will be announced here.
All master students can apply. Students of electrical engineering, information technology, information sciences, mechanical engineering and the TUM School of Management will receive up to 6 ECTS.

Every year the Zeidler MINT Maker Scholarship Programme enables 300 selected students of the Technical University of Munich to access the high-tech workshop UnternehmerTUM MakerSpace . In practical and project-based modules of selected teaching programmes and on freely-based projects the students can apply and deepen their academic knowledge. Using industrial machinery and tools and the latest software, the scholarship holders work on their own projects and products. In this way the students themselves become design-aware and creative and discover their own abilities and interests.
