About our overall Team

Got a Question?

If the given FAQs don’t answer your question, feel free to contact us at – we are happy to help!

After you have applied and received a positive feedback, you can check out beeing a part of LEVITUM for two weeks, before becoming an official member.

However, if you just have questions about our team and you don’t even know if you want to join, feel free to contact us at and we will be happy to answer all your questions.

No worries, you don’t have to chose a sub-team right from the beginning. If you wan’t, you can check out different teams in the beginning and chose a team afterwards. Changing your sub-team in a later stage might also be possible.

Of course, taking part in a student initiative requires certain commitment. If you can invest above 8 h of work per week, joining us makes sense.

Every single member of our team is an enrolled student at TUM and everybody wants to finish his or her studies. If you are busy during your exams or for important submissions, reducing your time input for LEVITUM is no problem. One motivating fact in the end: Many of our members belong to the best students in their study programs. Being part of a student initiative doesn’t mean bad grades 😉

Unfortunately, you have to be enrolled at TUM to be able to join LEVITUM.

Designing a VTOL aircraft includes disciplines from various fields of study. Everybody who is enrolled at TUM can join our team and lead to positive impact.

Beeing able to speak german is not a hard requirement to join us, however it is very beneficial, since a lot of communication takes place in german.
