Girls in Tech

In high school I chose to study Computer Science because I was curious about new technologies and interested in programming. Today I am following a master in Business Information Technology at the University of Twente. I am happy that I found an environment that encourages women to follow tech programmes.

The University organises a High Tech High Tea event for girls who just finished their high school programme and are passionate about technology. Here you can meet girls from the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Association – yes, we do have an association for that – willing to share their experiences and stories over a nice cup of tea. So, if you are not sure which bachelor programme suits you best, join us for an unforgettable experience. In addition, you might make some new friends!

Ladies Kick-In

If you follow a ’course for men’, the university organises special activities for you during the summer. These days are known as the Ladies Kick-in to let you know that you are not the only girl on campus! A visit to our labs is part of the programme. The first time I was there I thought I was not at university anymore, that is how cool it was. There are a lot of fun activities too, like a scavenger hunt with a number of crazy challenges. 

Female rolemodels

The Female Faculty Network Twente is the professional network of the female academic staff members. They raise awareness about the contribution of female academics in different disciplines. We all need female rolemodels we can look up to. All these actions and events slowly but surely empower girls to learn, grow and thrive.

More than a degree

I chose the University of Twente because of the quality of the programmes and because it is the most entrepreneurial university in the Netherlands. ‘More than a degree’ is not just a motto, it is something that you feel in every aspect of your student life. And this is the environment where I want to develop myself. There are always other women here to inspire you. To see your potential and help you succeed and fulfill your dreams. Do not let anyone stop you from becoming what you are meant to be.
