Engineering degree programmes

We educate students to handle the issues of their time. Our students graduate with technical excellence as well as a holistic and an innovative mindset, that come from exposure to real engineering problems embedded in curriculum.

The Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering is one of the largest educational institutions for mechanical engineering in the Nordic region.

All of our degree programmes are based on the needs of industry, and we ensure our students have a solid foundation in the core principles of mechanical engineering by designing a broad, deep, and creative educational experience for them.

Our graduates are in high demand in the labour market, and one of the reasons for that is that they are able to work in a balanced manner with theory and practice. This approach to learning is embedded in every course on our degree programmes, and our students work on problem-based assignments on all semesters. The great diversity of our research areas also affects our students as they are trained to work across disciplinary boundaries to find creative solutions to the problems of their time.

The Master of Science in Engineering degree programme (BSc + MSc) takes a total of five years, and with an MSc in Engineering, our graduates are the promoters of many major changes in society in jobs in virtually all sectors where technology plays a role, both in Denmark and abroad.

The Bachelor of Engineering programme takes 3½ years, and during their studies students meet the business community in their engineering internships. Graduates with Bachelor of Engineering degrees can go directly into the labour market and contribute actively to a company, while some choose courses so they can continue their studies to MSc in Engineering level.

As a graduate engineer you can also pursue a career in research if you supplement your studies with a PhD.
