ABOUT FEMALE TECH ENGINEER

Female Tech Engineer is one of three talent programs founded and run by CoGig. The program was initiated in 2013 with the annual program period January-Mars. We aim to connect women and non-binary persons in engineering studies and the Swedish industry in a unique and personal way.

During the program you will be both challenged and supported in your personal development. We are convinced you will leave the program feeling empowered to take on a career in tech in a successful and sustainable manner.

You will have the unique opportunity to build personal relationships with other engineers and key figures within the industry. Valuable contacts that might be your ticket to a great beginning of your career in tech.
