Becoming an engineer
At DTU our research and graduates aim to make a genuine societal impact, which is
why we educate problem-solvers who can lead the way and tackle the most important
global challenges as described by the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
All our study programmes are interdisciplinary and designed to promote sustainability,
innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Students get hands-on access to
world-class facilities and engage in project-based assignments with industry partners
where they can apply their theoretical knowledge to solving real-life problems.
DTU's academic programmes are based on cutting-edge scientific knowledge
all teaching, supervision, and course development is carried out by educators who
are actively involved in research and innovation. Our teaching methods stimulate
individual and collaborative learning. Students develop their analytical skills
through independent study, group work, active participation in discussions, and
close collaboration with fellow students and accessible professors.
Amazing study environment
The study environment is vibrant and international, and most students stay after
lectures to network, work on their own projects, or take part in one of the many
extracurricular activities. A recent survey found that 96 per cent of all DTU
students enjoy the University atmosphere, which is probably one of the reasons
why they spend so much of their spare time on our campuses.
Extracurricular activities include the
opportunity to participate projects
such as Denmark’s famous Roskilde
music festival (roskilde.dtu.dk), DTU’s
annual student conference Green
Challenge (groendyst.dtu.dk), or one of
our five Blue Dot projects:
DTU Roadrunners (ecocar.dk),
DTU Ecotrophelia (bryghus.dtu.dk),
DTU RoboCup (robocup.dtu.dk),
DTU Biobuilders (biobuilders.dtu.dk),
or SensUs (sensus.org).
