Participation is worthwhile!
The advantages at a glance:
- You will complete a six-month (paid) company internship, including project work, in a cooperating company. You will have already completed the compulsory internship for technical courses of study!
- One day per week you will attend regular first semester lectures at the Clausthal University of Technology and can also take part in laboratory tours, discussions with female students, engineers and networkers.
- You can take exams for the courses you have attended. If they pass, this is already the first "Schein".
- In a project presentation with company representatives, teachers of the TU Clausthal, school administrators, parents and friends you can present your project at the end.
- They can get an idea of life and studying at the TU Clausthal on site and at the same time get a taste of everyday work in scientific and technical professions.
The Niedersachsen-Technikum is intended to encourage young women to choose scientific and technical courses of study and professions. It is therefore open to all interested female high school graduates who are still undecided about a course of study and would like to find out whether a technical or scientific course of study is right for them. They should have an interest in scientific topics and be open to technical issues. The future career field requires a wide range of talents, so prospective students who have language talents beyond the natural sciences and technology or who focus on other subjects are also in demand.
Lilav, a sophomore studying Petroleum Engineering:
"At the TU Clausthal taster days we were able to go to different courses at the university, play sports with other students, carry out experiments ourselves and explore the city of Clausthal. For me, the taster days were a journey into the world of science and confirmed my decision to study at TU Clausthal.
The studies at the TU Clausthal are well organized and structured. In particular, the direct contact with our lecturers offers us immense help with existing questions. Since our university is very small, we have a strong cohesion among ourselves. The university accommodates an incredible variety of students of different nationalities, which also promotes the intercultural skills of the students."
We will then conduct an individual counselling interview and support you in your search for an internship!
