The university representation consists of nine mandataries. These positions are filled according to the election results of the ÖH elections, and as such by every student of the UAS Technikum Wien. They elect a chairperson and two deputies from their circle as their representatives.
In their sessions they vote on matters concerning the university representation. This includes topics such as the budget, the conclusion of contracts and the selection of heads of departments.
Every head of department of the HTW as well as their assistants and people employed by the HTW are bound by instructions of the chairperson. This person as well as his or her proxies represent the HTW to the outside and coordinate the activities of all its departments. The realization of decisions made in proceedings as well as the settlement of ongoing dealings are part of the chairperson’s area of responsibility as well as the direction of meetings.
