Academy Hypatia - Support program for students of the SFB/TRR 136 Process Signatures

The MINT subjects are continuously dependent on young people for their demanding research tasks. In order to inspire particularly ambitious engineering students for the topics of the SFB, the Academy Hypatia offers the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into scientific work. In addition to plenary discussions and lectures, group work also aims to provide students with targeted support for their scientific career. The main focus of the certificate courses ranges from topics such as presenting and moderating, to the planning of an academic career, to dealing with topics such as gender and diversity, transactional analysis or business etiquette. In addition to this professional support, which is intended to bring students into contact with the contents of the SFB, the focus is also on career advancement.

The main focus of each course is the evening fireside chat in which the professors talk about their respective professional biographies and answer students' questions.

In order to ensure quality assurance, the Hypatia Academy will be expanded or adapted on the basis of a regular evaluation.

The Academy Hypatia is part of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR 136 Process Signatures funded by the German Research Foundation.
