"Autonomous drone technology is an area in rapid development. There are many positive aspects of using this technology in offshore industries where the cost of manual labour is very high,” says Associate Professor Erdal Kayacan, Aarhus University, who is one of those working to develop new intelligent technologies for the maritime sector.

Drone technology gaining ground in the maritime sector

The potential of autonomous solutions for offshore operations in the maritime sector is huge. The Danish drone company Upteko is collaborating with researchers from Aarhus University to develop next-generation drone technologies and artificial intelligence for everything from rescue operations to 3D scans and inspections of entire ships.

"Super optimized wind farms will be a major step towards the green transition," says Associate Professor Mahdi Abkar, an expert in fluid dynamics and turbulence at the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering, Aarhus University.

New smart flow models could have a major impact on wind energy projects

Researchers from Aarhus University aim to enable the use of data-driven deep learning models for wind farm flow simulations, optimization and control, making them more energy-efficient. The project has received a grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

Four new engineering departments for Denmark

At the turn of the year, Aarhus University has implemented an organisational change to open four new departments. This is part of work to enhance research and educational activities within engineering science.

"In some years, we will have to install more than a 100 Gigawatts of solar PV and wind power, and to achieve full decarbonisation the CO2 prices will have to be a lot higher than today," says Assistant Professor Marta Victoria, an expert in photovoltaics and energy systems at Aarhus University.

Green energy transition: Early and steady wins the race

Researchers from Aarhus University have modelled the decarbonisation of the sector-coupled European energy system using very high-resolution data. The results are clear: To reach climate-neutrality by 2050 we need solar energy. And lots of it.

The green distributions come in the wake of a political decision to prioritise funding for the area in 2020. Photo: AU Photo.

Students nominated for major sustainability award

Three engineering students from Aarhus University have made it to the final of the SDG Tech Award 2020 with a robot that can measure salinity in the Arctic Ocean.

New technology will make it possible to examine the salt balance in the Arctic Ocean and thereby uncover signs of climate change that we might be overlooking today. (Photo: Colourbox)

New invention measures glacier water in the Arctic Ocean

Engineers from Aarhus University have developed a device that makes it possible to collect water samples from the Arctic Ocean at depths of 300 metres. This will help climate researchers acquire new knowledge about how the ice in the northern hemisphere is melting and what happens when it mixes with the salty seawater

"Mathematics is the best language we have to describe nature"

Marcelo Dias is a newly appointed associate professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. He researches into mechanical metamaterials and soft matter physics and he has a penchant for slightly more unconventional areas within engineering science, such as the wondrous patterns of nature.

Overall, the engineering degree programmes at Aarhus University have 18% more places than last year. Photo: AU Foto / Jesper Bruun.
