Services of the Gender AG
The Gender AG of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering organizes events, workshops and seminars in cooperation with various institutions for female students of our faculty in every phase of their studies. In addition, we offer personal consultation by appointment.
During the First Semesters
Ladies' Start is one of the events organized by Gender AG for all newly enrolled female students in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.
Female applicants for a study placement receive a letter from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering with confirmation of a study placement and a special invitation to Ladies' Start. This event, positively evaluable by past participants, is regularly offered every winter semester and is organized by the faculty. Female staff members in the Dean's Office and from Gender AG prepare the event.
In order to give participants an understanding of career paths, that female graduates of technical courses of study have assumed in industry, alumnae of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering are invited and asked to be available for presentations or personal conversations during Ladies' Start.
