School Projects

IMST (Innovations make schools top) aims to support teachers in making mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology classes more innovative.

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?

T³UG - Teens Tackle Technology

Do you want to get up close to science and research? Do you want to get to know the world of technology? Do you want to find out more about the work of the institutes and faculties at TU Graz? Well, with a 4 to 5-week summer job at TU Graz, you can!

Every year, around 90 girls aged 15 years or over have the chance to experience technology at TU Graz during the holidays. The pupils are involved in everyday life at the institute, take part in course preparation and research activities. They are supervised by an academic member of staff - if required, even after the summer job has ended, e.g. during school projects or when choosing a degree programme or career path.
