Women in STEM Round Table @ TUM | Edition 3: Breakfast & Networking

What it's about and what you get out of it

For our Women in STEM Round Table at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), we have invited women role models who work in various professions and different industries – and who all studied in STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) fields. They will give you insights into the following questions:

  • What is it like to oftentimes being one of the few women or even the only woman in the room?
  • What are ways to stay resilient in a male-dominated environment?
  • How do I navigate a STEM career path?
  • How do I combine my job with my family (relationship, caring for children or elderly)?
  • What are the biggest challenges in my day-to-day work life?
  • What are things I wish I had known when I was a student?

Your bonus: The role models will take time to answer your personal questions in small round table seatings. You also get the chance to meet other STEM women at TUM over coffee and breakfast!


Who this Round Table is for

Invited are all (those who identify as) FINTA bachelor and master students as well as PhD candidates and post-docs at TUM as well as STEM-interested school girls. FINTA refers to women, intersex, non-binary, transgender and agender people.

We'll show you: You're not alone!

For a woman to decide for a STEM degree or career might sound challenging to some and it might be self-evident to others – it can definitely be rewarding! However, many women might feel as if there aren’t that many other women taking that road as the numbers of women in STEM show.

But: These women are not alone and you are not alone! You will meet inspiring women on our panel who have built successful careers with their STEM studies.


Our Role Models come from the following companies and positions

Tania Campbell: Senior Manager HR Training at Rohde & Schwarz | Bachelor and Master degree in Electronics at University of York (United Kingdom)

Margherita Protti: Junior Software Engineer at Agile Robots | Bachelor in Automation Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and Master in Robotics, Cognition, Intelligence at TUM

Nikita Jayswal: Manager Sustainability Services EMEAI at ENGIE Impact | Bachelor in Chemical Engineering at Savitribai Phule Pune University (India), Master in Water & Environmental Engineering at Masdar Institute for Science and Technology (United Arab Emirates) and Master in ClimaDesign at TUM
