Welcome to the OnlineMentoring of the TU Wien!
The start of your studies or the selection of the right one presents us with some challenges. Does the study suit me? How and where do I sign up? Are there learning groups? Questions everybody has asked themselfes once or twice in their student carrer. We are happy to help you out here. Our online mentoring offers female and early female students the opportunity of an exchange with students of higher semesters on all these and other subjects. How the whole thing works can be found here.
Our mentoring team will assist you with any questions you might have about studying at TU Wien. Be it that you want to figure out whether a technical degree is right for you, or you just start with it and need help with the structures. After you have applied using the registration form, we will connect you with your female mentor and you are ready to go!
Our online mentoring is aimed for:
- Schoolgirls from the age of 16
- Female School graduates
- Female students of the TU Wien in their 1st year of study
An application is possible throughout the year. Depending on whether you are already a student at any university, or finishing highschool, you fill out the appropriate application form and we will then connect you with your female mentor. From this point on you can take advantage of the program up to two semesters maximum. If your questions are answered before that it's fine as well. You can end the mentoring at any time.
You are already in your 3rd semester and would like to pass on what you have learned? Then apply using the application form for female mentors and we will contact you as soon as possible.
Online mentoring serves to support and encourage female students and first-year students at the Vienna University of Technology. The project background is the fact that women in technical subjects are still strongly underrepresented. Only rarely do they choose "typically male" occupational fields such as mechanical engineering, process engineering, computer science, electrical engineering or civil engineering. Not because they can not, but because female role models are missing and wrong stereotypes are stored in the mind. OnlineMentoring would like to encourage and say: "Yes, you can!"
Benefits for you as a female mentee are:
- an increasing self-confidence for pursuing a technical degree
- appreciation and encouragement for being a woman in a field dominated by men
- an extended insight into the study and structures at the TU Wien
Benefits for you as a female mentor are:
- it brings joy and self-assurance to help others
- your own perspective as a student becomes clearer
- the acquired experience as a mentor can also be used in later careers
If you have become curious and want to know who the female mentors are and why, then take a look here.
Otherwise, we hope this has answered all your questions and are looking forward to receiving your application! If there are any further questions don't hesitate to contact me under the e-mail address stated on the right.
Have a great start into your technical studies!
