From August 12 to 30, 2019 the University of Bremen in Germany will host the 11th International Summer University for Women in Engineering.
Course offers can be submitted until February 17, 2019.
Women engineers from academia or industry and women working interdisciplinarily are cordially invited to develop and submit course offerings. Topics from the broad field of engineering and technology are welcome. Especially teaching in electrical engineering, information technology, chemical and mechanical engineering is welcome. The Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni is part of the regular course offerings of Bremen University so that teaching assignments can be given to women lecturers. We are especially looking for international lecturers. Course offerings in German and in English are welcome! We invite scientists, to take the summer university as a test field for new teaching formats and to get experience with highly engaged and interested participants. We also invite lecturers with course offers on career topics. Additionally, a special focus program will be arranged.
Focus 2019: Women´s Network – Feminist Networking!
The women´s network Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni is a place to exchange about technical and social developments, which we meet in our every-day life and which are designed by ourselves as technical experts. The Focus 2019 wants to give space and time for critical reflections and highly welcomes experimental debates on the relations of technological knowledge and developments in societies. We especially invite teaching offers, which deal with applications of technical know-how in spaces for work and life (for example within care, education, health, food, household, mobility, social networking, publicity, sports, militarization, etc.) from feminist perspectives.
Submissions for courses, panels, workshops, and talks on topics such as gender, equality, technology and ethics are highly welcome.
Companies with gender sensible organizational concepts and successful personal management strategies to promote women engineers to a broad spectrum of leading positions are invited to present their best practices to the participants of Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni. There will be plenty of other opportunities to sponsor.
The public meeting of the program committee will take place at Bremen University on March 2, 2019. Interested women are welcome. Please send a message to the Sommeruni-Team, so that we can prepare the meeting.
