Women in Technology
The University of Applied Sciences Kufstein Tirol (FH Kufstein Tirol) advocates for diversity and variety. This also includes active promotion of equality of women and men at all levels and in all areas of the higher education institution.
Heightened awareness is especially necessary for subject areas where women are underrepresented. Measures for developing and pursuing targeted advancement of women, especially in technical degree programs, are the ambitious goal of our higher education institution.
Active students, graduates, and lecturers are exemplary as they provide interviews to reflect on their view of selecting a technical profession and encourage others to do the same.
