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.
Formula Student gives a team of university students the chance to develop, construct and build a single-seated formula racing car which is then used to compete against university teams from other countries.
It is not simply the fastest car that wins Formula Student, but the team with the best overall package combining construction and racing performance, financial planning and selling points.
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
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
