Upcoming startups

We are still looking for a product manager and a software engineer to join Uni1, see This is your chance to get in on the ground floor and live the startup life! Uni1 has has paying customers and is about to raise a first round of funds. If you still need to write your final thesis, we can support you with this. Please talk to me (Riehle) for more information.

Studying in China

Again, we have China on our mind. FAU would like to improve its China competence, so if you have thoughts on how we should collaborate with Chinese universities, let us know. Also, if you would like to go and study or work with a Professor for your thesis at one of our Chinese partner universities, let us know!
