The Ladies Night for Women in Engineering Sciences turns 10 years old!

The Ladies Night for Women in Engineering Sciences

The Ladies Night for Women in Engineering Sciences is a networking event with a varied and diverse range of information on the topic of careers for women in engineering sciences and other MINT subjects. In addition to presentations by established scientists and engineers, discussions will be facilitated and different career paths in industry and science will be highlighted. The aim is to encourage women in particular to pursue their own careers.

The event celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2022.


Invitation to this year's Ladies Night

A Ladies Night will take place again this year. In the week from April 22-26, 2024, there will once again be an informative program for students, doctoral candidates, postdocs and pupils.
