In modern factories, machines are connected via digital networks which means that the entire production process can be controlled rather than just isolated processes. FAU scientists are working with partners from research and industry to develop a cloud platform for industrial service processes for companies to offer and run their services on.
Every year around 4,000 students from all over the world come to FAU to benefit from excellent research opportunities and teaching. To maximise this positive experience for all, FAU Volunteers for Internationals (FVI) organise trips to the Franconian countryside, language meet-ups, hikes and much more during the entire academic year.
FAU has maintained its position as one of the best 200 universities worldwide. It ranks 180th in the recently published Academic Ranking of World Universities, better known as the Shanghai Ranking. In national comparison, FAU ranks in 11th place. The Academic Ranking of World Universities is published annually by Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
