FAU Engineering Faculty in the Top 100 Global Universities

According to the annually published Shanghai University Ranking, the engineering faculty of FAU (TechFak) ranks in the 76-100 bracket of the top global universities. This is the more amazing and a testament to our university’s capabilities, given that we keep reporting research data in a way disadvantageous to us. Case in point: German universities list Ph.D. students as employees, while foreign universities typically don’t. Thus, German universities tend to have an abysmal efficiency ratio when it comes to research output per employee.
