A place for experimentation in teaching

In 1998 the University of Bremen started the first summer university for women in computing: Informatica Feminale is a place for experimentation and professional exchange, with the intention to develop and imply new impulses in Computer Science and Informatics.

The concept of Informatica Feminale was developed at Bremen University and has been transfered several times to national and international places. Informatica Feminale is organized at Bremenon a yearly basis.

International Summer Courses for Women in Computing

Every year the Informatica Feminale offers compact teachings in computing and ICT for women students of all types of universities and colleges as well as for women professionals interested in further training.
Entering higher education, developing a student career, transition into labour market and lifelong academic learning are equally in the field of vision.

Inter/national lecturers and students meet at the Informatica Feminale in Bremen, Germany to exchange.

For human resources managers we are particullarly pointing out that, during the whole summer school there will be plenty of opportunities to sponsor and to get in touch with graduates.
