Education Committees

The Education Committee is primarily a consultative body. In this committee, education is discussed jointly by students and lecturers. It is an indispensable tool in the process of quality assurance and improvement of education.

Advice

For the committee one of the more formal means to contribute to the quality improvement of education is to issue an advice. When the education programme is adopted by the faculty council, the committee's advice is even legally required. Furthermore, the committee itself can determine for which aspects of the education it wishes to issue a formal recommendation. The recommendations are addressed to the management of the Institute. Because the advice is issued through consultation of students and lecturers together, great importance is attached to these recommendations.

Representation

There are two Program Committees: the BSc Program Committee and the MSc Program Committee. The BSc Program Committee includes three student members from the bachelor programmes and the MSc Program Committee three student members from the master programmes. Every year, around October, new student members are chosen as representatives for their programmes.

We strive to involve students from each year and every specialization of the BSc programmes in the BSc degree program committee. To achieve this, the BSc Program Committee has student advisers in addition to student members. The MSc Program Committee is a student from MSc Computer Science, from MSc ICT in Business and from MSc Media Technology. Three staff members are represented in each committee and they are appointed by the faculty.

Contacts

The committees are in close contact with the director of education, the study advisers, the education coordinators and a representative of ICLON. Topics that are discussed are:

  • Facilities
  • Education evaluation
  • Computer rooms (temperature, seats)
  • Time-limit for correcting exams
  • Curriculum changes
  • Meetings

The meetings are freely accessible to everyone. If you have complaints or have something to share, you are welcome to address this during a meeting. You can also contact one of the members individually. The meetings are approximately once every two months.
