FSR is short for Fachschaftsrat, which is German for student representatives. As such, we represent the students' interests before the university and in its committees. As FSR ET/IT we represent all students of of department E which consist of anyone enrolled in Microelectronics and Microsystems, Information and Communication Systems, Information and Media Technologies, Communication and Information Systems, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering or Technomathematics. The student representatives consist of 12 members, elected by the department's students in May, as well as non-elected members. You do not have to be elected to be a part of the FSR!
We meet every second to third Wednesday and discuss the latest topics and issues revolving around the university and our department. If six or more members are present, a meeting is quorate. Non-elected members and guests are welcome to give input and take part in the discussions.
Twice a year, a plenary meeting is convened. On the meeting's date, all other lectures are cancelled and the department's students gather to be informed about the latest events, important future events and to bring forward concerns and questions of their own.
