Our tracks

We would love to introduce you to the following tracks.

The main idea of TUM.ai Makeathon is to develop a solution powered by AI within a cross-functional team. The solutions you will be working on have to fit into one of three tracks: Education, Environment or MedTech. Within these tracks, you can either join a challenge pitched by one of our industry partners, challenge setter, or if you have an awesome idea yourself you can also pitch it, so you can convince others to join you in building a viable business concept.
