How to apply stone veneer to icf

Not only on the occasion of Girls in ICT Day on April 22, 2021, as the Faculty of Computer Science, we are committed to promoting training and career opportunities for girls and women in computer science.

Speed ​​mentoring

Because women are underrepresented in computer science at all levels, it is particularly important to us to inspire female students to study computer science, to motivate female students to study for a doctorate and to support women in science and research.

That is why we start in the Girls in ICT Day with our virtual speed mentoring for schoolgirls from Burgenland, Styria and Vorarlberg. Excellent students, our Siemens scholarship holders, and professors from the faculty provide insights into the diverse fields of computer science, professional perspectives and new professional profiles, study content and their own résumés - how did they come into contact with computer science, which scientific projects are they researching, and what kind of experience did you have in computer science?

The mentors act as female IT role models and advise various mentees / students. This time the Bundesgymnasium and Bundesrealgymnasium Weiz, the Gymnasium Oberschützen and the BRG & BORG Dornbirn Schoren will be there. The mentors take turns visiting different students who can, for example, ask questions about computer science, studying computer science and career prospects in computer science.

Error in the system?

Even in 2021, it feels like half of humanity will still be kept away from MINT subjects - especially IT - with a simultaneous shortage of IT specialists. What errors in the system lead to this situation that has existed for years?

Experts from schools, IT didactics, business and research will discuss how girls can be motivated to study IT and gain a professional foothold in this area. How do you succeed in supporting female students in their academic careers, breaking down prevailing gender stereotypes and making female digital role models (more) visible? How can we ensure that teachers impart basic digital education competently, and how do we involve women in the digital transformation of our society?

Public, free access via zoom from 3:50 p.m. on April 22, 2021.
