Award ceremony for doctoral graduates and alumni

Finally completing a doctoral degree after devoting years of work to it is a very special occasion, and calls for a celebration. On 12 October, FAU officially recognised the achievements of its most recent doctoral graduates together with those who completed their doctoral degrees 15 (2004), 25 (1995) and 50 (1969) years ago.

The evening before, a gala dinner was held to celebrate the alumni’s achievements. One guest even completed his doctoral degree 65 years ago. All in all, FAU welcomed approximately 240 alumni and 140 doctoral graduates to the ceremony, some of whom travelled from all over the world to attend, for example from USA, Poland, Ireland, France, Switzerland and Austria.
