We dream of a world full of digital shapers. In simple terms, we wish to empower people by providing them a platform to pick up digital skills in Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Web Development with a unique blend of online courses and real-life projects supervised by mentors. Our "DigitalShaper" program offers an amalgamation of online courses, project work and most importantly community events and networking possibilities with experts, companies. We also organize hackathons as well as other ideathons to spur innovation with an entrepreneurial mindset in Aachen.
As volunteers, we work together across a variety of teams and projects all year round to offer the best learning experience to our techies.

Glimpses of our members at social events
"I think, except for the motivation of the whole TechLabs initiative and its mission and vision, what drives me is working with people who follow the same objective and also use the same level of professionalism to make a student initiative really feel like a professional NGO." - Excerpt from Co-founder Interview
