Aarhus engineers build mega-sized quantum problems

A bunch of bachelor students from Mechanical Engineering at Aarhus University are in full swing building a physical version of a very special computer game. They hope to get lots of people to play the game – because this is the only way to finish off the monster computer hidden away in the basement below the university.

He builds satellites – when every boy’s dream comes true

After three days in the clean room, five Aarhus University students finished building the Delphini-1 satellite, which will be sent into orbit next year as part of the university’s space programme. One of the five is Kåre Jensen, who is busy studying engineering.

Reality is not what it was. Aarhus University is now heading for digital horizons with a strategic research centre aimed at creating new recognitions and knowledge about important aspects of the digital reality of the future.

Aarhus University will boost digital understanding

Progress in electronic technologies during the last five decades has fundamentally changed society on a global scale, and has been of radical importance for industry and business. The digital ‘revolution’ is in full swing, and will only escalate in the coming years. Denmark is in a good position at the front and, with the establishment of a…

Engineers get patients and health care workers to communicate better

In a short space of time, a group of engineering students at Aarhus University created a new IT system for the Spinal Cord Injury Centre of Western Denmark. This raises the level of communication between health care workers, patients and relatives.

Communication Prize 2017 awarded to Aarhus researcher

Have you ever thought that the ground beneath you is moving? No? You are probably not the only one, but it actually does, and this is a headache for engineers. However, a new research study will put this right.
