Faculty Council

Faculty Council of the Digital Engineering Faculty

The Faculty Council is the highest body of the faculty. It is elected every two years by all status groups of the Faculty (students elect their representatives annually). According to § 73 BbgHG, the Faculty Council elects the Dean on the recommendation of the President of the University of Potsdam and is responsible for all questions concerning teaching. In addition, it delegates members, for example, to the examination boards.

After the committee elections in summer 2020 (faculties and senate), the Faculty Council was constituted on October 14, 2020.
