High Faculty Board (GFR)

The High Faculty Board elects the Deanery, advises on all matters of fundamental importance to the Faculty and must approve the structural and development planning or changes in the subdivisions of the Faculty, such as institutes (establishment, dissolution, ...). The GFR decides on recommendation of appointments and co-optations as well as the study and examination regulations in agreement with the respective study commission appointed by the GFR.

The high faculty board consists of 52 persons. This are:

  • all 33 professors and junior professors of Faculty 2, including those adjunct professors with post-doctoral qualifications, status as a professor and authority to supervise theses,
  • All co-opted professors (actually 5 coming form the Faculties 1 and 6),
  • 3 elected representatives from the academic service,
  • 1 elected representative of the administrative and technical staff,
  • 3 elected representatives of the doctoral researchers,
  • 7 elected representatives of the students.

The High Faculty Board has established a number of commissions for preliminary consultation and, in some cases, decision-making:

  • Honors committee, chairman: Prof. Martin
  • Room committee, chairwoman: Prof. Wieprecht, contact person faculty office: Ulrich Rentschler
  • Selection committee state graduate support, chairman: Dean Prof. Garrecht
  • Strategy development group, chairman: Dean Prof. Garrecht, contact person faculty office: Ulrich Rentschler
  • Study commission funds committee, chairman: Dean of Students Prof. Keip, contact person faculty office: Sabine Manthey

Committees related to study programs


The faculty's Study Commissions make recommendations on the further development of the study programs and on the use of the funds earmarked for study and teaching. They participate in the evaluation of teaching.


Each Study Commission has a maximum of ten members, four of whom are students. The Dean of Studies of the study program chairs the Study Commission. If required, the names of the ordinary members of the Study Commissions can be requested from the Faculty Office.


The examination committee of the respective egree programme organises the examinations, decides (if necessary by the person chairing it) on applications for extensions of the deadline etc. and ensures that the examination regulations are observed. The examination board appoints the examiners.


The composition of an examination committee is regulated in the examination regulations of the respective study program. You will find the chairpersons of the examination committees in the table below.

Selection and admissions committee


The respective selection committees (for Bachelor's programs with selection procedures or admission restrictions, at Faculty 2 IuI, UMW and VIng) or the respective admission committee (for all Master's programs) decide on the admission of prospective students.


The composition of the selection committees, most of which are appointed by the GFR, is laid down in the respective admissions regulations:

  • Selection committee for Real Estate Engineering and Management: 1 university teacher, 1 member of the full-time scientific staff, 1 advisor from the group of students;
  • Selection committee for Environmental Engineering: 2 members of full-time scientific staff, including 1 from the group of professors, 2 from the group of students as advisors; proposal by the Joint Commission for Environmental Engineering, appointment by Rector;
  • Selection committee for Transport Eningeering: 3 members of full-time scientific staff, including at least 1 from the group of professors

As a general rule, the admission committees are identical to the respective examination committees (see the respective admissions regulations). Exceptions are

  • The Admissions Committee for Environmental Engineering: 2 members of the full-time scientific staff, including at least 1 from the group of university lecturers; one student possible as advisor
  • The Admissions Committee for Transport Engineering: Identical to the selection committee for the Bachelor's program in Transport Engineering

Further Committees


The doctoral committee decides on the processes in the doctoral procedures of the faculty, such as the acceptance as a doctoral candidate, the admissions to the doctoral examination and the appointment of the examination committees for the individual doctoral procedures. Its other tasks are described in the current doctoral regulations [DE] of the University of Stuttgart.

Chairperson: Dean, actually Dean Prof. Dr.-Ing. H. Garrecht

In Faculty 2, professors, tenure-track professors, junior professors, extraordinary professors and private lecturers form the Doctoral Committee.


The habilitation commission decides on the processes on the processes in the faculty's habilitation procedures such as admission to the habilitation, the appointment of reviewers for the habilitation procedures as well as the assessment of the habilitation thesis and the oral habilitation performance. It decides on the designation of the subject or subject area of a habilitation.
