Munich is a major center for advanced technologies, innovation, education and business in Germany and Europe. The city is home to many high-tech industries and scientific institutions, with a long list of Nobel Prize laureates to boot.

​Our partner university, Technical University of Munich, is known for its cutting-edge research in various engineering and science-related fields, and ranked the fifth most innovative university in Europe.

Student Testimonials

NOC Munich has given me a rewarding experience, where I had the opportunity to work and learn alongside with driven entrepreneurs at Kaia Health and at TUM. This journey has broadened my vision and perspective, which enabled me to develop into being a more proactive, creative yet grounded individual.
