50 Students | All Disciplines | 10 Days | 10 Prototypes

Interdisciplinary Learning.
Think.Make.Start. (TMS) is a two-week interdisciplinary course at Technical University of Munich (TUM), which enables students from all study programs to think and act like Innovators.

Hands-On Innovation.
TMS is focused at innovation, namely the development of new products and services and their successful launch in the market.
During our events, 50 selected students from all disciplines need to identify, analyze and validate current needs and problems from social, technological and economic systems in interdisciplinary teams.

Design Thinking.
Solution ideas are then generated and iteratively improved by building prototypes and interacting with potential customers and users. TMS has a focus on products/services, involving hardware equipment, sensors, devices, enhanced by software, connectivity and data. In addition, suitable market hypotheses and business models are developed and tested.

Students get free access to prototyping facilities, money to purchase components and support from Product and Business Development professionals.

Demo Day.
At the end of two intense weeks, the teams present their solutions on a public Demo Day to their peers, friends, family but also to invited guests and experts from industry and academia.
