About

After the Technical University of Munich won all of SpaceX's four Hyperloop Pod Competitions in Los Angeles, Elon Musk announced a new worldwide competition: the Not-a-Boring Tunnel Competition. Eager to bring the victory to Munich again, a small team of highly motivated students decided to found a new student initiative dedicated to building the fastest tunnel boring machine in the world – TUM Boring.

Who we are

Our members come from a wide variety of study backgrounds, including Engineering Science, Robotics-Cognition-Intelligence, and Mechanical Engineering. We gained experience at TUM Hyperloop, CDTM, and Google. We hold scholarships from Apple, Studienstiftung, and Manage&More. We built our own drones, small-scale electric vehicles, and even a first tunnel boring machine prototype prior to the competition's announcement.
