    Meet our team of sixty students who received the most prestigious scholarships and awards, led international voluntary projects, founded their own companies, gained a ton of work experience at renowned firms (including Tesla, BMW, Google, and Siemens), developed robots, apps, and have now joined forces to shape the future of mobility. Our members – mostly students at TUM – have diverse academic backgrounds, origins and skills. What unites us is the unyielding motivation to make a positive impact through designing the best Tunnel Boring Machine in our participation in the Not-a-Boring Competition.
