We are the student association for mechanical engineering and there are quite a few of us, roundabout 13000 students are members of the second largest student association in Germany – the student association of Mechanical Engineering at the RWTH Aachen.
Every student of faculty 4, i.e. every student of mechanical engineering, industrial engineering – specialising in mechanical engineering and computational engineering science, is one of us.
Of these 13,000 students, almost 100 volunteer representing everyone. These 100 volunteers are usually referred to as the student association, although this is technically incorrect. We call ourselves the staff of the student association.
Anyone who would like to help out in the student council can simply drop by – there’s always something to do!
The staff is further divided into the student-council, the student-representatives and the free co-workers.
