On June 24, MCI | The Entrepreneurial School® was part of the annual Girls’ Day Tyrol, initiated by the Tyrolean government.
Numerous interested female high school students gained exciting and informative insights into the wide range of career opportunities offered by MCI's study programs in the fields of Technology & Life Sciences.
Pupils were able to experience and give professions ranging from building services engineer to applications programmer or mechatronics engineer to university lecturer - to name but a few – a try in an academic scientific environment. Whether it was lab sessions with series of experiments in biotechnology and process engineering/chemistry or exciting tours of the Medical Technology & Sports Lab or the laboratories for mechatronics and industrial engineering - the female students were able to gain an application-oriented overview of possible technical career fields.
"Getting young women and girls excited about technology & life sciences is a major concern for us! We are pleased if we have been able to arouse interest in exciting and innovative activities and provide realistic and practical insights into occupational fields with high future potential," says Brigitte Auer, Head of the Department of Quality Management, who is dedicated to the topic of women into technology at the Entrepreneurial School® together with committed colleagues.
