Gender equality work at the TU Ilmenau

"The Ilmenau University of Technology is committed to equal opportunities and a favorable social and cultural environment. It is committed to respecting all people regardless of their social, ethnic and religious background." (from the mission statement of TU Ilmenau 2010)

The topic of equal opportunities is an integral part of the university's mission statement. This includes observing the principle of gender mainstreaming as well as the targeted promotion of women in areas in which they are underrepresented.

Our strategy

Gender equality and equal opportunities at TU Ilmenau are seen as an important cross-sectional task embedded in overall social processes. Our mission is to anchor equality in the various levels and fields of action of the university. We aim to remove barriers to enable all members of the university to participate equally in university life in research and teaching.
