Why do women choose to make the Electrical Engineering research field their profession? What inspires them, what did their education offer them and how do they stand in society today?
We have invited four inspiring women Loes, Melissa, Fleur and Jelena who will give their vision of achieving success, career plans, and maybe change this traditional men's world into a world with more women.
