What is the Science Hack?

TUM Science Hack 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.

The last Science Hack in 2019 was attended by 90 students from various fields of study. Industry partners and university chairs offer exciting challenges, which combine issues from different scientific disciplines. Teams of up to five people will work out solutions for these challenges. Each team gets professional support from the worlds of business and science. At the end of the Science Hack, the coolest projects are rewarded with attractive prices!

How much programming experience do I need?

While programming experience is almost essential for every team, the challanges will encourage you to use a diverse set of skills in approaching complex problems, so you don't have to be a coder to join. Try to form teams that include people from different fields, but also make sure that there are coders in the team.
