Master’s degree programmes for postgraduate study

Electrical engineering and computer science: the best choice for your academic future
Autonomy Technologies offers a unique combination of (electrical) engineering and computer science. Students gain a broad knowledge base of hardware and software components and system understanding. Graduates of the program are thus competent engineers in the rapidly growing field of autonomy technologies. The degree qualifies students for jobs in different branches of industry, like automotive, automation and robotics, communication services or industrial services.
“Autonomy Technologies” is an internationally oriented study program in English. Our students can expect cutting-edge research topics (like, for example, robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous systems, Human-Robot interaction, intelligent systems, and many more) and fascinating job opportunities for your future after graduation.

The bachelor and master program “Autonomy Technologies” will be offered from winter semester 2023/24 on.
The bachelor program and the master program are both taught in English.

Studying at FAU also means getting to know everyday life in Germany as well as German and Franconian culture. Which questions will I be expected to answer in which government office? What’s the best way to get from the lecture hall to my sports class? And in which café am I most likely to find fellow students?
All these questions are easier to answer if you have experienced students on hand who can offer you advice and share their knowledge of the area. The Central Office for International Affairs (RIA) offers a wide range of support for international students.
More information on the support available is listed in the navigation menu on the left side of this page.

New country, new culture, new language and then lots of red tape to cope with? Don’t worry, we’ll see to it! With our new modular welcome packages (soon to be provided by FAU gGmbH), Bachelor’s or Master’s students can concentrate fully on settling in at FAU without having to worry too much about all the official things which have to be seen to.

The packages (currently available for Erlangen as place of residence) are offered at a charge and are tailored to your specific needs, ranging from someone going with you to help sort out the most important formalities once you have arrived in Germany to the full service package including an apartment in premium student accommodation. Our aim is to make your start at FAU as pleasant as possible.
You can book the packages by e-mail. Please mention the name of the package you would like. Please feel free to contact us at, also if you have any questions.
Buddy programme
The buddy programme puts international students in contact with German students who can answer some of their questions and provide useful tips. Buddies are not official advisors – they are volunteer FAU students who are interested in other cultures and would like to help international students at the university find their feet.
