Since 2018, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg has celebrated the achievements of doctoral graduates with a central awards ceremony, welcoming them into the alumni family.

The ceremony also honours all those who obtained a doctoral degree from FAU 15, 25 or 50 years ago, all of whom are invited to attend an alumni dinner the evening before. The ceremony offers the perfect occasion for all generations of the FAU family to meet, for alumni to return to their alma mater and for the doctoral graduates to celebrate completing their doctoral theses together with their families.

Did you complete your doctoral degree at FAU in 1970, 1995 or 2005?  Please get in touch. We would like to celebrate with you!

19. and 20. June 2020, Heinrich-Lades-Halle Erlangen

Do you have any questions regarding the event?
