ITU ensures the representation of women STEM subjects. Scholarships, mentoring, awards, maternity and childcare policies are in place to support students and academicians.
The award program was prepared to honor the scientists working at ITU who have carried out original and groundbreaking studies in the fields of science, technology and art. The aim is to support young scientists, and to reward faculty members who make
a difference in education and training.
