Women's tracks

TU Wien Women's Award honours successful female graduates of TU Wien who have carried out projects and tasks in their professional lives that are of particular social, economic or scientific relevance. TU Wien thus honours female graduates whose professional biography serves as a role model for female pupils and students and inspires them for their own career planning. The Women's Prize was awarded for the first time in 2015. The prize is awarded annually.

TU Wien Women's Award is eventually sponsored by corporates.

The computer scientist with a doctorate and a soft spot for computational linguistics is also convincing due to her ongoing commitment to getting women and girls interested in STEM subjects," says Gertrude Kappel, Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science, about the 2022 award winner.
