Student research groups
Many students at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are investing their varied talents and creative ideas into research projects – in groups like AkaModell, TUfast, Hummingbird and WARR. The projects range from building the fastest Hyperloop pods through getting concrete to float to developing and launching innovative gliders. These groups always welcome new recruits with a passion for research.
For tackling everyday issues by synthetic biology, student groups compete annually at the international Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition, initated at MIT in Boston. iGEM Team Munich
