  • TUM Boring wins the Not-a-Boring Competition 2021

    The Not-a-Boring Competition happened on September 12th, 2021. We would like to thank our partners for making this journey possible.

    The Not-a-Boring Competition, hosted by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company, challenges teams from around the world to drill a 30m long and 50cm wide tunnel as quickly and accurately as possible. Elon Musk already hosted four SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competitions in California, all of which students from TUM won. The Not-a-Boring Competition happened on September 12th, 2021 and TUM Boring – Innovation in Tunneling won the overall competition. There are three categories in which we competed:

    Fastest to complete the tunnel

    Fastest to provide a driving surface

    Most accurate guidance system
