Abstract

This project contributed to the global effort to recruit women into STEM fields, focusing on Switzerland. The goal was to help NTB Buchs find ways to recruit more female students to their Systems Engineering program. The team interviewed women on NTB’s campus to better understand the culture of NTB, while also analyzing the effectiveness of the Girls’ Day event through observations and surveys. The project resulted in a set of proposals and recommendations for NTB.
