Program 2024 is coming soon

Thanks for your interest in our summer school. The course program 2024 will be published soon (status as on 15th July 2024). On the registration webpage you can gather some first impressions of the courses and the social program. The summer university will be on campus at Bremen University in Bremen, Germany.

The University of Bremen in Germany cordially invites to the 16th International Summer University for Women in Engineering. It will be on place in Bremen from August 14 to 29, 2024. More than 60 courses from the broad field of engineering and technology will be offered to women students in engineering studies, to practitioners in the field and to students with other backgrounds. There will be basic, special and interdisciplinary course topics as well as course offers concerning studies, jobs and careers.

Topics from the broad field of engineering and technology are welcome. Especially teaching in electrical engineering, information technology, chemical and mechanical engineering is invited. Additionally, our special topic will be sustainability with focus on ecological and social impacts of technologies.

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 Summer University 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 offer teaching, 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.

All, who want to receive information about future Summer Universities, are invited to subscribe to our mailing list. Please send an email to info@ingenieurinnen-sommeruni.de

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 Informatica Feminale. There will be plenty of other opportunities to sponsor.

International summer courses for women in engineering

For the Summer University for Women in Engineering 2024 we cordially invite women students from all types of universities and colleges as well as women professionals interested in further training from all over the world! You will experience three months of professional studies and establish a network with women having manifold backgrounds in a friendly and stimulating environment at the University of Bremen.

Every year the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni offers compact teachings in engineering and technology.

Entering higher education, developing a student career, transition into labour market and lifelong academic learning are equally in the field of vision. Inter/national lecturers and students meet at the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni in Bremen, Germany to exchange.

Since 2005 the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni is part of the regular course program of Bremen University and organized by the Kompetenzzentrum Frauen in Naturwissenschaft und Technik der Universität Bremen (Center of Excellence Women in Science and Technology) in cooperation with the Fachbereich Produktionstechnik – Maschinenbau & Verfahrenstechnik sowie dem Fachbereich Physik und Elektrotechnik.

Funding comes predominately from the Professorinnenprogramm (joint initiatives of the German federal state and the Länder) and the University of Bremen.

A place for experimentation in teaching

In 2005 the University of Bremen started the first summer university for women in engineering: Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni is a place for experimentation and professional exchange, with the intention to develop and imply new impulses in Engineering.

The concept of Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni has been transfered from Informatica Feminale, the summer university for women in Informatics (Computer Science). Informatica Feminale was developed at Bremen University in 1998 and is organized at Bremen on a yearly basis in parallel to the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni . More detailed information about the concept and history of Informatica Feminale can be found at www.informatica-feminale.de.
