Through these activities, Technik ohne Grenzen aims to put their technical expertise to meaningful use in the service of others. This is the guiding principle behind the foundation of the organisation, with the motto being “as sophisticated as necessary, as simple as possible“. In the organisation’s name, the term “technology“ represents an invitation for all technical enthusiasts, as well as tradespeople, technicians, artisans and engineers, to participate in the work.The organisation places great importance on offering students the opportunity to make a difference through the application of technical and engineering skills to a variety of challenges in different locations and cultures. If these ideas inspire you, Technik ohne Grenzen would love to have you work with them!
