The Faculty Council (FAR) is responsible for all issues related to teaching. Its tasks include making decisions on new degree course and examination regulations, the appointment of the Academic Affairs Committee, the Examination Board and the laboratory managers, and it also decides on professorial appointment proposals, for example. The Faculty Council elects the Dean, the Academic Director and the Associate Deans. It makes decisions on the setting up, changes to, and the closing of faculty facilities (e.g. laboratories). In addition, the Faculty Council must agree to the structural and development plans of the faculty.
The Faculty Council comprises all faculty professors, 3 members of staff and 6 students.
The Dean is ex officio chair of this governing body.
