For Young Women and Girls

Graduates of degrees programmes in a technical subject or the natural sciences have very good professional, income and career prospects. Despite this, women are still underrepresented in these programmes. TU Graz wants to get rid of any possible inhibitions!  

 

As a female pupil, where can find out about degree programmes in technical and natural science subjects?
How can you become a holiday intern and get a unique insight into university life?
Where can you find a supportive environment when you start using computers?

FIT – Women in Science and Technology

The initiative FIT – Women in Science and Technology aims to encourage girls to study a technical or natural science subject. TU Graz cooperates with other Styrian universities, universities of applied sciences and colleges, and provides information on degree programmes.

  • Girls studying a technical or natural science subject visit schools as FIT ambassadors.
  • At the FIT info day at TU Graz in February, you can familiarise yourself with the university and the courses offered. There are institute presentations, lectures, laboratory practicals and discussion groups.
  • Organisation of school fairs and participation in interregional fairs such as BeSt3 in Vienna.
