STEM+ Mentoring Program

The mentoring programme "STEM + Mentoring for University, Job & Career" is aimed at female students in the fields of architecture, applied computer science, civil engineering, forestry, building services engineering, and traffic and transport engineering. The first round of the scheme ran from October 2015 to July 2016 and the second from October 2016 to July 2017. We started with the third round in April 2018; it ended in January 2019. The closing ceremony of the 4th took place on 15 January 2020.

Between 27 April and 6 May 2020, the kick-off events involving the program coordinators and tandem partners were held via video-conferencing. This 5th round will also be the last in the mentoring program at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt, as the scheme expires at the end of 2020.


What is mentoring?

As a mentor, a "more experienced" person passes on his or her know-how and experience to a "less experienced" person (mentee), thereby furthering their personal and/or professional development. In professional practice, mentoring is a tried and tested and effective instrument for the targeted advancement of young talent, and many universities also have mentoring schemes.

The aim of "STEM + Mentoring for University, Job & Career" is to strengthen the motivation of female students in the above-mentioned fields of study, encourage their academic success and provide support in career planning. Depending on their preferences, the mentees are assigned mentors: either an experienced student, with whom questions and concerns about their studies can be discussed, or an experienced woman from the field, with whom the mentee can gain insights into the professional world, for example. In addition, a complementary program includes workshops and networking opportunities designed to strengthen the mentees' personal and social skills and help them succeed in their studies and careers.

What does STEM mean?

STEM is a collective term for subjects taught and studied or professions in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Since women are still strongly underrepresented in STEM degrees and in their corresponding occupational fields, the mentoring scheme is aimed specifically at female students.
