Unit of study and teaching
The working group (WG) Studies supports the Study Program Revision Committee and student observers in aptitude assessment procedures (EfV) and degree programme orientation procedures (SOV).
Quality Management Circle
The quality management circles (QM) are constantly working on improving teaching for the various degree programmes. For this, representatives of students and the faculties come together in a committee to discuss major challenges.
The WG Didactics supports the class speakers in case of any lecture-related problems, prepares QM circles, helps with feedback, and analyses the results of lecture evaluations in order to award prizes for good teaching.
Study Program Revision Committees
The Study Program Revision Committees review and amend degree programmes while student representatives contribute the student perspective on changes.
TUM appoints or renews professorships through an appointment committee, which consists, among others, of two student representatives. They ensure that the professors’ teaching concepts create real benefits for the students.
