Organisation and committees

The committees of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering include the committee for financial teaching support and the study commissions of the degree programs CBI, CEN, CEP, ET and LSE as well as the management board of the department.

  • The management board discusses and decides questions related to the strategic running of the department.
  • The study commissions consist not only of professors, teaching and academic staff, but also of student representatives. The study commissions discuss topics relevant to the running of the degree programs for example exam regulations and teaching programs. They address relevant current issues, providing innovations, suggestions, and improvements to the department and decide about matters of the study programs.
  • The committee for financial teaching support discusses the appropriation of study grants at the department level.

Information on the members of the respective committees can be found below.
