During the last University Council we discussed several documents including the analysis of academic process during the Bachelor College Cohorts 2008-2015, which shows an upward trend in the study process, partly through the introduction of the Binding Study Advice (BSA). We are glad to see that the increase of the BSA limit from 40 EC to 45 EC did not have a significant impact on the percentage of failures.
Within the TU/e, a Research Support Network is established which will assist faculties, especially academic staff, in the development of research proposals in order to find good alignment with the (research funding) market.
The Institutional Plan 2017-2020 mainly describes the Strategic Plan of the TU/e. The Board of Executives prefers to act with an eye on the student growth, excellent education, international impact, partnerships, people and finances.
Studentlife! describes the vision about the support of student organizations affiliated with the TU/e, which includes no big changes yet.
Furthermore, the updated guidelines regarding bi-certification for both Bachelor College and Graduate School were discussed, as well as the topic list of the so called ‘’Model OER’, which is of great importance for all students. The topics of the defined topic list will carefully be discussed in relevant gremia, to monitor possible changes accurately.
