Certificates of Attendance

Certificates of participation will be issued by the Network Women.Innovation.Technology in cooperation with Furtwangen University of Applied Sciences upon fulfilment of the specific performance requirements of the respective courses. The additional awarding of credit points (ECTS), if applicable, is based on the announcement in the course programme. The recognition of the participation certificates as well as the credit points is carried out by the respective course management at the home university and must be organised/ checked by the participants themselves. At most universities, it is most desirable to make arrangements with the course director in advance of the meccanica feminale. The requirements for the participants are set by the lecturers within the framework of the generally accepted scope of performance.
