All properly enrolled students of the Faculty of Bio- and Chemical Engineering are the student council.
The student body is represented by the student council (Fachschaftsrat), which looks after the common interests of the students of the faculty.
The student council is represented in the faculty's committees and works there to improve studies and teaching. It is the contact for the AStA and for the Dean's Office of the Faculty or external organisations, projects or associations.
The student council organises its own events, takes care of tutorials and exam preparation and makes proposals for the use of tuition fees.
