Each program within the FEB has its own Program Committee that holds an official role to give advice about the program. As a Program Committee member, you will work with both fellow students and staff members of a study program. Half of the members are staff and the other half are students from different years of the specific study program. This ensures that the students are equally represented. Meetings are held at the end of each block, to evaluate the implementation of the Teaching and Examination Regulations.
The main tasks of the Program Committees are to issue advice on the teaching and examination regulations, to assess the implementation of these regulations, and to issue solicited and unsolicited advice to the Faculty Board concerning all matters related to teaching and examination in the study programs. Furthermore, as a PC member you will analyze the course evaluations and Year Representation minutes (and other relevant documents), and provide advice on any changes that are proposed for the courses of the program. Of course, while doing all this you bring in your own experience and opinion, as well as the opinion of your fellow students.
Student members of a Program Committee are directly involved in the management of these programs, gaining professional experience, representing their fellow students, and improving the quality of education of their faculty. This as a result allows you to differentiate yourself from others once you graduate. On top of that, you will be compensated for your work as a Program Committee member.
If you wish to benefit from this experience while filling an important role in your faculty, send your CV (or provide your LinkedIn) and a short motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning your program. At the moment, vacancies for the PC members are closed.
