Women are finding their way into engineering
The University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien has made it a central goal to encourage more women to gain a technical education. To this end, the institution implements measures that are particularly beneficial to women and that assist women during the course of their studies.
In order for women to be able to make an informed decision about studying engineering, they need to have a precise idea of the kinds of careers available in that field and the opportunities this kind of education offers for their future and their career. For this reason, it is not only important to ensure equal opportunities for both genders, but also to implement measures that do indeed expose women to engineering and science. This contact should occur as early as possible in life.
What do we do to achieve these objectives?
- We carry out projects and activities specifically aimed at increasing the share of females in all of our degree programs.
- We assist females in their decisions regarding further education and promote our technical degree programs even more at schools with a high proportion of females. This is done in the form of presentations held at the schools.
