The student representation team at D-MAVT represent the interests of the students, and participates in the committees on departmental level. These are the Departmental Conference, the Unterrichtskommission, and the Notenkonferenz. The team consists of students from each year of study and is the primary point of contact for both students and the department.

The team meets regularly to discuss and resolve requests and problems. Furthermore, the team organises Examination Preperation Courses, and works on improving the degrees offered at the Department as well as the study conditions.


The task of the student representation team at D-ITET is to represent its students with respects to Professors and the Department. This means, among others, contributing in teaching commission and department conference but also organizing information events for students.

This allows us to support almost all modulation schemes, from CW through SSB and the digital formats. We also work on interesting projects in the domain of wireless communication. To prepare you for the HB9 amateur radio exam, the Funkbude is providing an interesting course every autumn semester. We are open to all members and alumni of ETH.


We Ladies in Mechanical and Electrical Studies are the women’s committee of the AMIV. We organize different events to connect female students of ITET and MAVT and to network with industry partners.

Our events are mainly addressed to female AMIV fellows. New Ladies in our main board are besides always welcome. But at our talk events, we are also always happy about male AMIV participants.

The Kontakt comission is responsible for organising all aspects of the annual AMIV Kontakt job fair.

Contact with companies, catering, PR, controlling, the responsibilities are varied, and everybody can find his/her place.


The Randomdudes form one of the more special commissions the amiv incorporates. Its main duties are sustaining knowledge within the amiv and to ensure the ridiculously generous opening hours of the amiv office. Most of our members are former board members and other friends of the gondola, which we care for and continuously improve.

We also organize many events that make studying a little easier and especially more fun.


Making the world a prettier place since 2016 - the AMIV's very own in-house design team is tasked with creating better looking posters, flyers & infoscreens, lit merchandise and stickers you will keep forever. If you enjoy the creative side of life, and are looking to learn or apply some editing skills then hit us up with an e-mail.

Once a semester we host a Photoshop-battle, inviting everyone who wants to put their Photoshop/GIMP/Affinity/Paint skills to the test in a laidback atmosphere.

Most of our work can be found by scrolling through the AMIV event page.


szene3 is amiv's theater group. We rely on the creative minds of our members: we do the directing, acting, make-up, stage design and everything else that goes with a theater production ourselves.

The plays we play are primarily comedies with depth. We stage close to the text and give great importance to giving the actors the greatest possible creative freedom. In past projects we have worked on pieces by Wilde, Dürrenmatt and Horváth.

At the beginning of the fall semester, we start a new project and are always looking for committed students who are interested in acting and would like to participate. We meet once a week in the theater at Irchel University to rehearse and we perform in spring. The plays are all in german.


The Energy Master Chill Club is a student-run AMIV commission bringing together energy students across different years through all types of events (Fondue Night, BBQ, Ski Weekend, etc.).

Our events are not just for MEST students, we encourage any and all students to join us!



The Biomedical Engineering Student Association at ETH Zurich is a social group with members mostly studying in or graduated from Biomedical Engineering MSc. program. Our aim is to bring together young engineers in their studies and help maintain the crucial balance between work life and leisure.

However, just as our academic program, we are open to students from various backgrounds. If you are interested in biomedical research AND having fun, follow us!



The Micro- and Nanosystems (MNS) Commission brings together people interested in Microsystems and Nanotechnology by organizing events for prospective, current and former students and researchers at any level (BSc, MSc, PhD, postdoc…), as well as faculty members. During our events (e.g. dinners, apéros) you can learn about the Micro- and Nanosystems specialization (lectures, exams, research, internships) and perhaps find your supervisor/student for a bachelor, semester and master thesis. You will probably get a more realistic impression of the personality of your supervisor/student after a few drinks at the CLA rooftop than through a 10-minute office meeting or by scrolling through a research group’s website. If that sounds useful, or you just want to chat with your classmates over a pizza, do not hesitate to drop us a short email and we will put you on the mailing list for our upcoming events!


The Quantum Engineering Comission (QEC) is the student association of the Quantum Engineering students. Its goals are the following:

  1. Improving the cohesion inside the Quantum Engineering Master program by organizing social events. Our football team represents our master in the ASVZ tournament. Weekly events are organized to keep people in touch (even during the confinement).
  2. Give students a sense of belonging: the quantum community in Switzerland is growing: let’s all be part of it!
  3. Getting students into the field of Quantum Engineering through technical events such as the Paper Club and events with the Industry in the future.
  4. Supporting students in their studies.

We are a fun, driven and a little crazy group of people!
