Femtec is a university careers centre for women in the natural and engineering sciences. It was established by the Europäische Akademie für Frauen in Politik und Wirtschaft Berlin e.V and the Technische Universität Berlin. Femtec is a public-private partnership between leading technical universities and manufacturers for the purpose to encourage interest in the natural sciences among girls at an early age, to provide improved career prospects for ambitious female engineers and scientists, and to develop new forms of training cooperations between universities and industry.
In 2003, Femtec. GmbH set up Femtec.Network, Germany’s only national network of six leading technical universities and eight companies. During their studies, currently more than 100 selected young women are being cached in career-building programs of Femtec and Femtec. Network.
