Women in Science Inspiration for your career!

WOMEN IN SCIENCE – Inspiration for your career!

How do (other) female engineers shape their careers and how do they realize their plans? Do you want to hear inspiring stories about getting a job after your studies? Do you want to discuss with other ladies about how it is to work in the world of science and do you want to follow a nice workshop? Then you may not miss Women in Science!

This event is organized by KIVI Students Twente in cooperation with KIVI Netwerk Vrouwelijke Ingenieurs. We hope to welcome (PhD-) students, young professionals, career tigers and everything in between. Also men are more than welcome to join!

During this event, three successful women Mariska Bos (Multiphysics Engineer at Demcon), Vanessa Magnanimo (Adjunct Professor of Soil MicroMechanics at the Faculty of Engineering Technology) and Pavlina Nanou (co-founder and Managing Director of TORWASH) will give their vision on achieving successes and career plans in this traditional men's world.

The chair of the day is Cristina Zaga, assistant professor, speaker and maker of robothings. At the Human-Centred Design group, of the University of Twente she contributes to teaching and research, specifically focusing design methods for embodied AI and interactive agency. Cristina interests lay in the interaction design and related methodologies for technological products and systems that aim at social good, especially physically embodied AI-driven systems (e.g., robots, IoTs). At the DesignLab, she investigates methodologies, methods, tools, and techniques to connect science, technology, and society through responsible design. Cristina is also board member of KIVI Netwerk Vrouwelijke Ingenieurs.

After the pitches you can participate in a creative workshop given by Carla Kamphuis.

During the drinks and some nice sandwiches there is plenty of chance to network with the speakers and other participants.
