The student council (StuRa) is the elected representation of interests of the student body of the TU Ilmenau and represents the students towards the university, the city, the country and the federal government.
The task of the elected department student council is to represent the interests of the students.
Beside contentual and organizational tasks, the Equal Opportunities Office implements the objectives of the Equal Opportunity Council. The tasks include, among other things, the preparation of programs and provisions to support equality, counseling on personal scientific careers and social issues (pregnancy, work / family compatibility) and the organization of events related to equality.
Since 2003 there is an Amnesty International Group at the TU Ilmenau composed of committed students, staff and external members. Human rights work is the most important matter for Amnesty International, which has more than three million members worldwide. Awareness campaigns, further education and events on the subject of human rights are as much a part of the tasks as road campaigns, signature campaigns, demonstrations and silent vigils.
