Mentoring Programmes for Women
Women students are still underrepresented in many courses of study at TU Kaiserslautern, and many of these women face a definitely masculine environment. The TU offers mentoring to women students free of charge in order to help them to get a good start in the first semesters at the university and to lay a foundation stone in their pursuit of a profession and their planning for their careers. This mentoring lasts two semesters and starts at the beginning of the winter semester of each year. It is designed for women students of all academic areas.
Women also continue to be underrepresented in management positions at the university. This is why TU Kaiserslautern has discovered the possibility of mentoring as a way to encourage the upcoming generation and develop human resources in order to pave the way for women into leadership positions.
