Meet some of the women who have chosen to walk the path towards IT
The IT University of Copenhagen is committed to diversity and gender balance within IT. Because digitalisation affects us all, it is important that both men and women take part in designing the new technologies, which create our common future.
These years more women are choosing an educational path within IT. In 2017, the IT University of Copenhagen experienced an almost twofold increase in the number of female applicants for the bachelor programme in software development.
However, there are still many questions concerning future opportunities and what kind of work one can be engaged in with an education in software development. The answers to this vary as much as the questions. An IT related education opens the doors to a wealth of opportunities and there are many different ways to go.
