Information for mentees - 2020

Thank you for your interest in the mentoring scheme "STEM+ Mentoring for University, Job & Career". Below you will find information on who can participate in the program as a mentee, how you can benefit as a mentee and how to apply.


Who can be a mentee?

Up to 18 female Bachelor's students

  • in the departments of architecture, applied computer science, civil engineering, forestry, building services engineering and traffic and transport engineering
  • who will be in their 2nd semester at least in the summer semester 2020.

How can I benefit as a mentee?


  • are assigned an experienced student or a woman with professional experience from the real world to act as their mentor, advisor and counsellor
  • can ask questions about their studies, discuss problems and obtain important information about the Bachelor's and Master's programs
  • gain practical insight into future fields of work and new ideas for their personal career path
  • get to know other female students from different disciplines and make useful contacts
  • use workshops to improve their methodical, social and personal skills, which are essential for their success at university and in the workplace.

How exactly does the mentoring scheme work?

You can also see a rough Schedule for this year here (as of April 2020; subject to change).

Who are the mentors?

  • The mentees can decide for themselves whether they want to work with a mentor from the university or a mentor from the world of work.
  • A mentor from the degree course: is an experienced student (Master's or Bachelor's student who is at least in their 6th semester). The mentee can discuss all topics related to their studies with the mentor, such as questions and tips on work placement semesters, examinations, papers, the course of the Bachelor's and Master's programs, etc. However, you might also find it helpful to talk about individual challenges or future plans. Mentees are free to choose their own topics of conversation.
  • A mentor from the world of work: is a working woman from the fields of architecture, IT, civil engineering, forestry, building services engineering or traffic, transport and logistics. The mentee can, for example, discuss options in her studies, discuss career paths and gain an insight into everyday working life, e.g. as a civil engineer, project engineer in a planning office or division manager in an IT company. Here, too, the mentee determines together with her mentor which topics will be discussed.

What is expected of the mentee?

  • Willingness to meet the mentor every 4-6 weeks and to arrange appointments with her independently. In the preparatory workshop at the beginning of the scheme, the mentees are introduced to topics that could be discussed with their mentors and given the necessary resources to find goals for their work with their mentors.
  • Participation in the accompanying program, i.e. in the opening and closing events in addition to the workshops and networking opportunities
  • Interest and motivation in using the mentoring scheme to advance your own academic success or career and life planning.
