Women in Electrical Engineering

About this event

Date and time

Erlenmeyer in Gallery building

Have you ever thought about a master's degree in Electrical Engineering? Would you like to hear from women in the field what jobs they have with their Electrical Engineering background?

We have invited four inspiring women Loes, Melissa, Fleur and Jelena who will give their vision of achieving success, career plans, and maybe change this traditional men's world into a world with more women. 
This event is organised by the Department of Electrical Engineering (EEMCS) in cooperation with KIVI Students Twente (KST) and KIVI Netwerk Vrouwelijke Ingenieurs (NVI). We hope to welcome (PhD-) students, young professionals, career tigers, alumni, and everything in between. 

Signing up for this activity is free! You can sign-up via KIVI: https://www.kivi.nl/afdelingen/kst/activiteiten/activiteit/women-in-electrical-engineering
