On 8 November, 21 girls from Liechtenstein and Switzerland used the opportunity to take a look at the Institute of Information Systems as part of the National Future Day. Based on the motto of “Girls go IT”, the day provided the young visitors with practical insights into the worlds of IT and information systems.


The event was introduced by Professor Michael Hanke, Vice-Rector Teaching and Learning, with a brief discussion on the question “What is a university?” Under the guidance of Rainer Barthels (Dipl.-Phys.) and Dr. Bernd Schenk from the Institute of Information Systems, the girls then explored the subject of IT from various perspectives. They took computers apart, designed home pages, visited the university’s server room and even wrote their own little program.



During the day, the girls also had the opportunity to get to know various professions within the IT and information systems sectors. Lecturers Dr. Bernd Schenk and Rainer Barthels, researcher Dr. Theresa Schmiedel, Head of Central Services, Markus Graf (Dipl.-Ing. HTL) and IT apprentice Dominic Beck answered questions from the young ladies.



The participants included girls between the age of 11 and 13 , who took away a memory stick with their own computer program, a notepad full of notes and lots of information from the field about what it is like to work in IT or business computing.
