Studying during Corona


Dear Faculty of Engineering students,

Corona sucks. For everyone. And yes, believe it or not – we miss our students and are wondering how you are doing. How are you managing your studies during the pandemic? How do you motivate yourself without going to in-person lectures? Do you have any tips for the “Corona” first semesters, who began their studies in such an exceptional situation?

And because everything is different this year, we have an idea! We want to stay connected and avoid feeling isolated at virtual lectures, and since we can’t meet up in person:

Creative, honest, humorous, motivated – please send us a short video, voice recording, or picture to your thoughts on “Studying with Corona”.

Why and how?

We would like to publish particularly successful videos, photos, and sound bites on our social media and/or on our TF-website in order to stay in touch. We hope that the most creative uploads will go down in FAU history as well as create a great atmosphere at the virtual TF graduation ceremony and make the celebration unforgettable, at least virtually.
Moreover, for your contribution you will also receive one of the new TF defies Corona masks, which can be picked up at the TF Dean´s office, Martensstr. 5a.

So, challenge your creativity and upload your personal clips to the FAUBox by 11.01.21 via the following link:
