College for female researchers: Internet Technologies / Women in Technology (WIT)
From 2003 to 2007, the Institute of Software Technology and Interactive Systems hosted the project “College for female researchers: Internet Technologies”. The project was very successful, both in research and as a role model for women support measures in technology. After the project ended, the Faculty participated in the program “Women in Technology” (WIT-neu, 2008-2011) which constituted a modified continuation of the college while expanding to four faculties at TU Wien.

From 2004 to 2015, the Faculty organized a special focus day during the FIT Information Days in addition to the workshops that are still offered every year. The GiTi (girls IT information) Day aimed to spark young women’s interest in studying Informatics at TU Wien and to show them that computer science was much more than programming.
