Obligations to promote gender equality in Finnish higher education institutions include student perspective and education. The great amount of information is already gathered yearly, e.g., feedback questionnaire for graduating students or career monitoring surveys. However, in pedagogical management and development the gender perspective is less explored, although the data would provide a good opportunity to analyse differences between male and female students in study and work life experiences. The example surveys from the
fields of technology in universities of applied sciences presented in this article indicate gendered differences in study guidance and career counselling, as well as in work life positions and career advance after graduation. The more comprehensive analysis and discussion of this evidence from gender perspective is needed both in universities of applied sciences and nationwide to recognize possible stereotypical views, gendered bias, or practices, which may influence
on different experiences and later gendered segregation in working life.
