The composition of the Faculty Council
The members of the Faculty Council can be divided into three groups: The members with advisory vote, the members with voting right and the members without voting right.
The group of members with an advisory vote is composed of the Dean as Chair, the Associate Dean and the Dean of Studies.
The members with voting rights are elected by the members of the faculty in accordance with the election regulations of RWTH Aachen University. Of the 15 members with voting rights, eight are members of the group of professors, two are members of the group of academic staff, two are members of the group of non-academic staff, and three are members of the group of students.
Members without voting rights include the faculty representative of the Equal Opportunities Officer, the election senator and the departmental group spokespersons, provided they are not members in accordance with §15 Para.1 of the Faculty Regulations.

The Faculty Council is responsible for passing resolutions on all matters of the faculty that are not the responsibility of the Dean's Office or another responsibility. It is responsible for all matters relating to research and teaching and must ensure that the faculty fulfils its other tasks within the university.
