Dear female students, we would like to welcome you on our website. Our department offers you different possibilities to enhance your future career by introducing to you several networks and mentoring options.
TU Darmstadt cooperates with Femtec, which is a university centre for female engineers and scientists located at Technical University of Berlin (Technische Universität Berlin). Femtec offers a network to prepare young women with a technical background for their professional life. The network includes experts from leading universities and international companies and offers female students a 4-semester career-building programme.
The Mentoring and Networking-Programme „Big Sister“ is specifically aimed at international female engineering students. The aim is to support international female students, who are starting their studies at TU Darmstadt. Participants will be accompanied by “big sisters” (advanced students or PhD students) for nine months to facilitate their entry in the university.
The mentoring network offers young women experienced companionship throughout their studies as well as their career planing. The goals range from strengthening women in their professional competencies to providing them with more visibility (role models) as well as supporting female students and doctoral candidates in their transition between their studies, dissertation and professional work.
