Ten large technology companies and ten major Universities of Applied Sciences of the German speaking world, work together in Femtec. Our ultimate joint objective is the promotion of young female executive talent in engineering and natural science study courses.
Since 2001, several hundred female graduates have successfully completed the Femtec programmes and make up the Femtec Alumni, a strong network of female engineers and scientists.
Femtec pursues a holistic concept. It offers programmes for young women during the transitional period between school and college, female students and graduates and future female executives.

In this way, the students gain valuable technical and commercial experience, a huge advantage when starting a career in the automotive industry.
The Foundation of German Business (sdw) is one of the twelve organisations for the promotion of young talent currently supported by the German Federal Ministry of Research and Technology. The sdw supports highly motivated young people at school, university students and doctoral students.
A Fellowship Programme grants scholarships to committed young people from these target groups. The sdw offers the fellowship recipients financial support and also organises various events with an emphasis on offering valuable intellectual support.
With the “Deutschlandstipendium” of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, students are supported, who have recommended themselves for the scholarship with outstanding academic achievements. Decisive for the granting of the scholarships are, beside good grades, also social commitment of the students. The scholarship is granted in equal shares by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and private donors like
