In 2023, FAU has once again proven itself as one of the most high-ranking universities in a variety of fields. With its selection of experts and focus on research and industry, it has even been able to improve some of its rankings compared to last year in the Times Higher Education (THE), Shanghai Global Ranking of Academic Subjects and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The areas of Medical Technology and Biomedical Engineering in particular continue to have excellent ratings at FAU, as do other FAU subjects with which the degree program Medical Engineering is collaborating.

For the second year running, FAU is included in the THE subject ranking for all eleven subjects that were investigated. Worldwide, it made it into the top 200 for eight subject groups, and within Germany even into the top 20 with all subjects. One of the eight subject groups is Computer Science, which moved up the international list from rank #159 to #142 compared to last year. In the national ranking, Engineering made it into the top 7. Subjects at FAU did particularly well in relation to the performance indicator “industry”. This is based on third-party funding from industry and the number of patents based on research conducted at FAU.

According to the Shanghai subject ranking 2023, FAU jumped into the top 100 worldwide for the five subjects Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Energy Science & Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, and Medical Technology. Medical Technology at FAU has rank #75 internationally and is even counted among the top 10 universities nationally. In addition, Biomedical Engineering achieved rank #8 internationally in ARWU, and a list published by Stanford researchers counts FAU researchers among the top 2% most cited in the areas of Engineering and Biomedical Research.

Overall, FAU continues to excel at national and international rankings. The team of the degree program Medical Engineering is glad to be working with such outstanding researchers!
