Reaching for the stars
Students of the Technical University Munich getting closer to the stars by building and operating their own satellites.

About Us

MOVE is a student group at TUM for satellite development. MOVE is a cooperation between the Institute of Astronautics at TUM and the Scientific Workgroup of Rocketry and Spaceflight (WARR). The project is funded by the German Aerospace Center DLR (FKZ 50RM 1509).

We are a team of around 50 to 100 people and we have members from all over the world. We are not only working on projects together, but also good friends and have often fun together. Sometimes we go hiking or just chill together during a barbecue.
