Research, discover, invent – lateral thinking is welcome

FAU is a full-spectrum university with a long tradition of research. Over 250 degree programmes and long-standing partnerships with international research institutions such as Max Planck, Fraunhofer and Helmholtz give staff and students the opportunity to look beyond the boundaries of their own subjects, network with others and consider research questions from different perspectives. FAU encourages its members to think in every direction – above all laterally! This diversity makes FAU one of Germany’s leading research universities.
