FAU among the top 200 universities in the world

The 2017 Shanghai Ranking has just been published

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 university is particularly outstanding in one specific category, as was also the case in the QS World University Ranking published in June: FAU ranks 119th on an international level with regard to the indicator of the most frequently cited researchers; nationally, it counts among the best five. Its rankings in the fields of ‘Telecommunication Engineering’ and ‘Energy Science & Engineering’ are especially positive and here it holds first place in national comparison.

The Academic Ranking of World Universities is published annually by Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Universities are assessed on the basis of the number of most frequently cited academics, the number of articles published in ‘Nature’ and ‘Science’ and the number of the university’s Nobel Prize and Fields Medal recipients.
