Munich is well established as the tech capital of Germany and countless household names in manufacturing have plants or headquarters there.  Several of them offer guided tours, opening a window into their high-tech production lines, including automotive giants BMW and Audi.

What’s more: now that Munich is working towards a greener future, creative minds have come up with innovative ways to bring clean, renewable energy to its residents.

All this makes it an inspiring and exciting destination for Key Stage 5 students considering a career or a degree in engineering.  Our suggested itinerary is designed to showcase a range of fields of engineering and a flavour of what it might be like to work in them.
