Committees and commissions of the Physics department

UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!! Should be finnished very soon.

The Physics department features many committees and commissions with student representatives. Those members are appointed by the highest departmental committee, the faculty council (German: Fachbereichsrat (FBR)). When there is a committee or commission with student representatives, those in the faculty council suggest students, which are then normally appointed.

The members of each commission are previously discussed in the students council. So all student representatives are in general close to the students council or members of it. This is due to working in those committees requiring an insight in the proceedings within the Physics department and consultation with the students council. On the other hand, the motivation of non-members of the students council is rather low.

Working within a committee or commission is very interesting and gives you a lot of insight, which could be useful for your future career (i.e. working in the review committee shows the appointment process and by which means applicants are sorted out). If you’re interested in taking part in such a committee or commission just contact the members of the students’ council or the student representatives in the faculty council. The Committees are normally constituted in the beginning of each year, after the election of the new faculty council.

Overview

Faculty council

The faculty council is the highest committee if the Physics department. All decision concerning the department are made here (Election of the dean or changes in examination regulations and more) The faculty council is consisting of 10 professors, 4 students and 3 employees with voting rights. Head of the council is the dean. Sessions are public with the exception of “employee affairs”. The election of the faculty council is towards the end of each winter term, so the new council can constitute itself for the summer term. Students are elected every year, whereas professors and employees are elected for 2 years. Every student has the right to run for a seat, as long as he is a listed student member of the Physics department. For a candidature you need two non-running students supporting you. It is also possible to run together as a list. The voting proceedings are quite similar to a local election. You can choose the whole list or vote for single persons on this list. In the previous years there has only been one list, which was proposed by the students council, but we always support candidatures beyond the students council.

Student representatives:

Technical committee for studies and teaching (FSL)

This committee discusses the basic questions for teaching and studies. The representatives decide which lectures and laboratories are offered by the department. In addition they also decide the content and volume of these courses. The technical committee for studies and teaching also discusses the survey of the lectures and evaluates them. They report to the faculty council and offer proposed resolutions if necessary. The committee consists of 3 professors, 3 scientific employees and 3 students.

Student representatives (FSL):

Silvia Hiebel, Kevin Mours, Aaron Thielmann

Examination boards (DPA/FPA)

These committees deal with all things relating to the examination regulations of the respective degree program. This includes cases of hardship, interpretation of the rules, regulations for exceptions and special cases and changes to the rules themselves. The chairman has a very important role in this. He decides, for example, about the recognition of certificates, special minor subjects, etc. There is a student member in every DPA/FPA. There is a committee for each degree program.

Master's distant learning course/zertificate Nanotechnology

Examination board for the Master's distant learning course/zertificate Nanotechnology:

Student represenatives:

Patrick Mischke, Aaron Thielmann

PR commission

This commission was introduced to improve the homepage and PR affairs of the physics department.

Student representative:

Jacqueline Momperé, Aaron Thielmann

Budget commission

The budget commission is responsible for the budget planning in the Physics department and forwards a proposed budget plan to the faculty council. The commission distributes the aviable material expenses of the deparment among the working groups and teaching facilities. This does not only imply money but also office space and employees. There is one student in this committee.

Student representatives:

Kevin Mours, Aaron Thielmann

Structural commission

This commission deals with long-term and structural affairs of the Physics department. This implies for example new research areas or professors. The results of the commission are presented to the faculty council. The commission usually meets two times each term. It features one student representative.

Student representatives:

Aaron Thielmann, Kevin Mours

Award commission

The alumni association honors graduate students in the Physics department at each academic anniversary celebration for their outstanding voluntarily engangement.

Student representative:

Aaron Thielmann, Sarah Kovač

Commission for outstanding teaching

Student representative:

Julius Bohm, Sarah Kovač

FSL - Educational studies

Student representative:

Review commission

A review commission is established to stud a professorship. Therefor this professorship is announced (e.g. as experimental physicist or biological physicist). After the closing date for applications the commission meets for the first time and reviews the applicants. Out of this list, appropriate people are then chosen and invited to a colloquium and job interview. Most times a dinner with the applicant is scheduled for getting to know him better. After all, the commission meets again to get an idea of all applicants and demand for letters of record of other professors. The commission then creates a list of candidates which is forwarded to the faculty council which approve the appointment. This decision is then forwarded to the senate and from the to the national ministry, where the new professor is appointed. The composition of the commission varies for each case. Lately, every review commission had two student representatives. This commission is of high interest for students, because you can learn a lot about appointing a manager.
