SPITZKE student competition.

Learn, experience, win!

The next SPITZKE Student Competition will take place in the summer semester 2022 (April-August) and will culminate in the award ceremony for the winner at InnoTrans 2022. Registration will be possible beginning in winter 2021-2022. More information will follow shortly.

+++ Update +++

On May 25, 2021, the best submission from this year’s competition was selected. Jannick Wagner, a student from the Technical University of Braunschweig, submitted excellent work that prevailed against the very strong competition. This year, the SPITZKE Student Competition was held entirely virtually for the first time in order to meet the health protection requirements in the COVID-19 pandemic.
