We want our young girls who are studying at the engineering faculties to find place in the business world as 'full-fledged engineers' by providing the internship opportunities, social engineering trainings and mentoring support as well as a scholarship support.
Engineering attracts attention as one of the professional fields where participation of women is at the lowest levels. We want to increase the awareness of young girls and ensure the more woman engineers take part in business life.
We aim to include successful young girls, who are enrolled at many engineering faculties in Turkey and need financial support, to EGT and raise full-fledged engineers for our country.
