Module 1: Facts and figures


The distribution of personnel at the Faculty of Science and Engineering between the sexes is clearly uneven. It should, however, be pointed out that even if the distribution were 50/50, this would not constitute a reason to downplay gender awareness. Discrimination based on gender can occur even in groups in which the balance between the sexes is equal.
