President's Welcome
I would like to welcome you at the Busan Branch of Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU).

Founded in 1743, FAU ranks today among the Top-Ten universities in Germany. In the past, numerous students from Korea and other countries came to our university and graduated successfully. Now, following the tendency of globalization in the field of higher education, the FAU professors in turn come to the Republic of Korea. We are highly honored that, with FAU Busan, we became the first German university in Korea. From now on, you will be able to study at a German university while staying in your home country. At the same time you will still have the opportunity to spend some time at FAU in Germany.

At our Branch Campus in the Busan-Jinhae Free Economic Zone, we offer a Master's program of Chemical and Bioengineering with an original curriculum and degree from the excellently reputed FAU School of Engineering. In six different fields of specialization, this program provides education at the highest level equal to the one in Germany, closely connected with the FAU Busan Research Center. During your studies, you will actively participate in the research projects carried out in this center. One of the strengths of the German system of higher education is the principle of combining theory and practice. Our students will greatly profit from the opportunity of combining classroom knowledge with concrete lab experience, always accompanied and guided by world-class scientists.

Located in Busan, the FAU Branch Campus offers you the opportunity to find and pursue your passions in culture, sports and leisure in the unique international atmosphere of a big metropolis. We would like to invite you to start an ambitious course of study coupled with an especially attractive and versatile student's way of life.
