Companies present a problem, students present the solution: that's how it works at the Techathons of Technologiesocutting Münsterland. The Techathon is an ideas competition in which students search for practical answers to business challenges.

  • Students take on the role of problem solvers, get to work after a briefing and present their results at the end.
  • The Techathon brings people and ideas together and links science with business.
  • This is how long-term cooperation and relationships between companies, students and universities can develop.

Review: Techathon from 28 March to 1 April 2022 at Münster University of Applied Sciences

The first Techathon was a complete success! From 28 March to 1 April 2022, companies and students came together at Münster UAS to exchange ideas. The students tried their hand at the MakerSpace, developed creative ideas and helped the participating companies in Münsterland to overcome current challenges. The first challenges were set by:

  1. Algura Chemie GmbH & Co KG

Here are some impressions of the event:


The second Techathon will take place from 10 to 14 October 2022 at the Westfälische Hochschule (WH) in Bocholt and the FH Münster in the MakerSpace.
