  • University elections

    On this page, you can find news concerning the upcoming university elections, general information about our election program and the candidates, as well as the results of previous elections.

    Who is elected and how?

    During the university elections, you can vote for two groups of candidates:

    Student representatives in the TUM Senate and the TUM Board of Trustees

    Since the summer semester 2013, the Senate and the Board of Trustees each have two seats for elected student representatives. They represent the interests of all students of TUM.

    Student representatives in the department council

    The department student representatives team consists of up to 25 people. The four students with the most votes represent the rest of the electrical and computer engineering students in the department council. Therefore, for this vote you can choose up to four candidates. If there are several teams - also called lists - you can just vote for the list that you prefer. If you vote for a list, you automatically give your four votes to the first four candidates on that list, one per candidate. However, you can also freely vote for specific people within the same list. If you choose to vote for individual people, you can give up to three votes to the same person.
    If only one list stands as candidate, you will need to vote for individual people within that list as described above.

    The elected candidates represent the electrical and computer engineering students' interests in the student association council, the department council and in all other committees held in the department.

    Dean elections

    Every three years, the dean of a department is elected. This summer semester 2020, reelections are held again.

    2020 elections

    Election dates in the summer semester 2020

    This year, the election day is on July 28th 2020, from 9:00AM to 5:00PM. Electrical and computer engineering students can vote in the immatriculation hall.
    However, because of the Corona pandemic we recommend you opt for postal voting instead. We have written an instruction on how to vote here.

    Meet&greet

    Unfortunately, we had to cancel the meet & greet event this year. However, you can still write us a mail, if you have questions concerning university policy or our candidates and election program.

    Candidates

    This year, the following students are running for seats in the department council of the electrical and computer engineering department: Sophie Frizberg, Henry Winner, Jonas Schupp and Kilian David. The candidates are part of the "LitFaS" list.

    Our electoral program

    LitFaS

    LitFaS is an abbreviation, standing for "List of departmental student councils standing in for the interests of the students of the Technical University of Munich". Our list is a union of the departmental student councils of the TUM, therefore we are politically independent. Our members are very active in their respective departmental student councils, meaning that we are the only group who has an overview of the whole university, and, at the same time, know the current situation in all the departments very well. Consequently, we can represent the interests of all students and know where we can accept compromises in case of conflicting interests.

    LitFaS' members have an imperative mandate. This means that we guarantee that we represent the interests of the TUM's students and not our own or that of a political party. In order to be able to do that, we need feedback, criticism, suggestions and questions from your part. You can contact us with any issue anytime via e-mail (litfas@fs.tum.de), during the faculty and student assemblies taking place once every semester (FVV & SVV), at departmental student council meetings that are open to any student, at council meetings of student representatives, at student council meetings or in person.

    You can find LitFaS' detailed electoral program here. On that page, we also state our positions concerning current and important topics.

    Additional topics

    Additionally to LitFaS' general electoral program, there are some more topics that are currently of great importance to us:

    • Recognition of credits received abroad
    • Allocation of places in lab courses and lectures with participant limits
    • Distribution of study grants
    • Making the university's political structures more transparent to students
