  • To enable experience and knowledge
  • Increase visibility of and support career development of qualified experts in engineering and other STEM fields
  • Promote continuous learning through field trips, lectures and workshops
  • To help the life model career with family to success
  • Awaken interest in technology and technical professions at female students and publicize the related opportunities and possibilities.

Recent developments

  • Involvement of WIE at the 2018 ISINA conference in Chemnitz

Volunteering

The IEEE WIE Germany Section works on Volunteering!
We strongly believe in the need for role models in science and engineering for young girls, and we are convinced that it is of major importance to inspire and motivate them while still in primary school. Thus we plan to buy some experimental training material for children and contact local primary schools in Munich surroundings to agree on a program. Our vision is to organize visits to schools and offering get-together session where young pupils can get in touch with us and our subjects in a funny way.
