The biggest day of the year has dawned for hundreds of new engineering students starting the first day on their new degree programmes at Aarhus University. “It’s a landmark day on which it’s crucial to remember the key role of student advisers," says the director of studies.
This year, AU Engineering has offered study places on engineering programmes to 1,092 applicants. This is an increase of 19% compared to 2019.
The number of applicants to engineering at Aarhus University increases once again. After a year of stagnation due to coronavirus, young people flock back to AU Engineering.
You wouldn’t think it, but the sewer can be a huge source of valuable resources in a future circular bioeconomic society. Massive flows of nutrients and potentially sustainable building blocks are currently going to waste in the world's treatment plants. An international team of researchers is going to change that.
How fast can we get a total green energy system? That was the title of the panel discussion Friday evening in the 'Tech Tent' at Denmark's Political Festival, Folkemødet, based on rising energy prices, the Prime Minister's warning of a shutdown of Russian gas and the latest report from IPCC, which emphasizes the need for immediate climate action of a long-term nature.
Once again, AU Engineering participates in the annual People's Meeting (Folkemødet) in the "tech tent" together with the other technical universities in Denmark. Thursday at 12, the tent officially opened with chemistry shows, quizzes and speeches.
In the world-wide project Tiny Earth, pupils at upper secondary schools, as well as university students and researchers, are working together to find solutions to a major shared challenge: antibiotic resistance. The project is also generating learning and motivation on several levels according to two of the participating school teachers and a Bachelor's degree student.
Four researchers from AU Engineering have received major grants from the Independent Research Fund Denmark for new technological research. In total, the Faculty of Technical Sciences at Aarhus University has received DKK 26 million shared between eight projects.
Radical innovation. Under this headline, 275 engineering students explained why their ideas have the potential to disrupt an entire industry. They made their pitches last week at the Applied Innovation in Engineering 2022 event in Stakladen at Aarhus University (AU).
A future society powered by sustainable energy sources will need storage technologies and sustainable fuels, as well as chemicals with high energy density for carbon-based industries and infrastructure. Here, Power-to-X technologies play a crucial role.
