General Assembly and BBQ

On Monday, November 05 we will hold our General Assembly (Fachschaftsvollversammlung) for the winter term 2018/2019.

We invite all students of the Automation & Robotics program to attend the assembly. If you want to engage in the Student Association, learn what’s going on, or just meet with your fellow students, this event will be a great opportunity.

The General Assembly will take place at 4pm on Nov. 05 at Haus Dörstelmann (South Campus, Baroper Straße 322).

In the formal part of the meeting, we will elect people into official positions inside the Student Association. If you want to join the Association, this is the best chance to do so.

Official Invitation

There will also be a short talk by a representative of GET racing, the university’s racing team.

Afterwards, we will have a barbecue. Please take the time to fill out this questionnaire, so we have an idea of how much food we will need. Food and some drinks will be provided, but you are free to bring what you like as well.

We hope to see as many of you there as possible!

New logo wanted!

We need a logo for our student council and therefore we want to introduce a small contest where the best submission of a logo will get a 20€ Amazon-Coupon. Feel free to add your own ideas to the logos and be creative. Here are some previous ideas as an inspiration:

Additional requirements for the submission:
  • SVG file format (vector graphics for scalability)
  • It should contain some abbreviations or full text referring to our Master’s program and to the student council (e.g. “MAR”, “A&R”, “Fachschaft”, “Student Council/Association”, …)
  • Preferably 2D and without color gradients (easier for printing and better visibility)
  • Respect copyrights (create your own content)
Submission details:

Just send us your design via email to until the 1st of September. Our student council will decide collectively afterwards which design wins. The winner will be announced latest on the 15th of September.

Have fun designing logos and feel free to pass around the contest to others. The more designs we get, the better!
