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 Bremenon 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.
