Careers in Science – Engineering (May 27, 2021)


Thursday 2:00 – 4:00 pm

In the series of talks on career paths in science, professors of TU Darmstadt explain which stages have to be mastered on the way to professorship and how different scientists' biographies and career strategies can look like.

The focus here is on computer science and electrical engineering and information technology – but all other related disciplines are also cordially invited.

Experienced as well as recently appointed full and assistant professors of TU Darmstadt will describe their personal career paths in a relaxed atmosphere, share their experiences and insights, and explain what is important for a career in science.

There will be plenty of room for your questions. At the end of the event, there will be the opportunity to address subject-specific questions to the professors in breakout sessions.
