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 new technologies fascinate you, especially those involving findings in chemistry and physics? Or do you want to know how mathematics and computer science are applied in medicine and 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.
