The Academic Ombudsman in the Faculty of Civil Engineering is Professor Dr.-Ing Johannes Pinnekamp.
The ombudsman acts as a mediator in conflict cases between students and teachers, examiners, or the administration. Before students can engage the ombudsman, they are asked to first contact the Student Representative Council. In many cases the problem can be solved with the help of the Student Representative Council. Should this fail, the ombudsman is the next person to contact and act as mediator.
