Initiatives of the Faculty
The WIAI Faculty has a number of initiatives and societies that offer various activities which students can get involved in. It is this student involvement that makes it possible for these societies to realize their respective programmes and create a useful offering for all the faculty’s students.
WIAI Students’ Union
The students’ union is the official students’ representative committee in the WIAI faculty. It is set up as an initial contact point for students, it provides assistance in all faculty-related academic matters, and it also offers help in solving problems of everyday student life.
Seven students are elected to the students’ union as representatives, but volunteers interested in getting involved in the faculty’s student issues are always welcome.
The WIAI.community is in charge of organizing the WIAI faculty’s alumni affairs. The primary goal of this registered association is the promotion of contact and sharing of experience between the faculty’s graduates, instructors and students. The community is always happy to welcome new members who are interested in getting involved during the course of their studies.
Originating from a project initiated by a number of Information Systems students and one Business Administration and Management student in the year 2000, Feki.de, with over 70 members, is currently one of the University of Bamberg’s largest and most active student organizations. In keeping with the organization’s stated objective, “Easing and shaping communication and student life in Bamberg,” Feki.de provides information and organizes events pertaining to all aspects of student life in Bamberg. The organization is always on the lookout for students dedicated to contributing to and further developing Feki.de.
