Women in Engineering.

FIT (German: Frauen in die Technik) shows that engineering can be an attractive field for young women!

Are you a female student at an AHS or BHS school and don't want to leave your professional future to chance? Do you find new technologies fascinating, especially those involving findings in chemistry and physics? Or do you want to know how to apply mathematics and computer science to fields in medicine and found in industry? Then you have come to the right place!

Let us tell you all about degree programs offered at the JKU and the University of Applied Sciences for Health Professions in Upper Austria. We can help you find a degree program that's right for you and as we are students as well, we will be right by your side.
