The Faculty Council is the official representative advisory body in which staff and students participate and consist of 18 members: 9 staff and 9 student members.
What does the Faculty Council do?
We voice the opinion of the 6000 students studying at the Science and Engineering faculty. By means of right of consent and advice, the Faculty Council has an influence on the educational programs, research, budget, human resource policy, regulations on labor conditions, housing policy and other organizational changes.
The Faculty Board meets with the Council once every six weeks to discuss issues stated above. The meetings of the Faculty Council are open to the public, unless the Council decides otherwise. Outside the meeting with the Faculty Board every cycle, the Council meets in various committees to go into further dept about e.g. Research and Education or the Finances of the Faculty.
