Places still available at the Niedersachsen Technikum Practical training and university experience for female high school graduates

Abitur – and now? For young women who have passed their Abitur and are now looking for an exciting MINT profession, Technische Universität Braunschweig, together with numerous companies in the region, offers the Niedersachsen-Technikum. The practical orientation gives participants insights into technical and computer science professions that young women often do not initially consider for themselves.

The next round of the Niedersachsen Technikum starts on 1 September and lasts six months. Part of the programme is a paid internship in a company four days a week. Here the young women can test the everyday working life of an engineer or computer scientist. Another component is the weekly university day that the female technicians spend at TU Braunschweig. The regular attendance of a course with the possibility of exams and credits is just as much a part of it as visits to institutes, excursions and a lot of helpful information on the topics of studies and degree programmes.

The participating companies are again offering exciting and varied internships this year. There are still vacancies at Volkswagen AG, Salzgitter AG, EDAG Engineering GmbH or K+S Minerals and Agriculture GmbH, among others, for which interested young women can apply.

Online info event

In an online info hour on 01.08.2023 at 18:00, a former technician will report on her experiences. The person responsible for the programme at TU Braunschweig, Britta Böckmann, will explain the content, procedure and application process.  For more information and to register for the event, visit www.tu-braunschweig.de/technikum or send an email to chancengleichheit-mint@tu-braunschweig.de.
