In our first Science Hacks we tackled specific areas, including Sustainability, Human-centered Technology and Building A New Reality. In 2023, we brought edge-cutting solutions in the topic of Trustworthy Systems.

FAQ - TUM Science Hackathon

TUM Science Hackathon is the hackathon organized by TUM: Junge Akademie, a scholarship program of the Technical University of Munich for exceptionally talented and dedicated students with high affinity for research and teaching. Students of diverse fields and from different universities are invited to participate in this hackathon and to display their creativity, passion, and problem-solving skills.

Industry partners and university chairs offer exciting challenges, which combine issues from different scientific disciplines. Teams of up to five people work out solutions for these challenges. Each team is supported by professionals from the worlds of business and science. At the end of the Science Hack, the best three projects are rewarded with attractive prizes!

The challenges will encourage you to use a diverse set of skills to approach complex problems, so you do not have to be a coder to join. Try to form teams that include people from different fields, but also make sure that for the programming challenges there are coders in your team. If you apply individually, we will take your background into account when we match you with your future team members.

Taskforce CAP is one of eight Taskforces at TUM: Junge Akademie and manages cooperations between TUMJA and TUM-external parties (e.g., companies/organizations). Read more about us here!
