Danish researchers behind new cancer images

By combining two different scanning technologies, researchers have succeeded in creating completely new and detailed images of cancer tumours in mice. This could eventually pave the way for the development of more effective drugs.

In the coming years, researchers will develop new technology that can accommodate the world’s growing need for computers that are even smaller, faster and more energy-efficient. With a prestigious EU research grant, they will establish a completely new technological foundation for the electronics of the future.

Congratulations to the new engineering graduates

On Friday 1 July, diplomas were awarded to a new batch of engineers from Aarhus University. The event was followed by speeches and sparkling wine.

The building laboratory at AU Engineering has in recent weeks been the epicentre of true copies of some of the most powerful earthquakes in history. All the vibrations come from a specially built simulator. Pictured here (from left) are Jakob Gam, Andreas Poulsen and Søren Truelsegaard – all engineering students at Aarhus University.

Well-insulated new shelters have become popular as a replacement for cotton tents or tin huts in emergency areas. They can house refugees for up to 15 years and provide protection from heat and frost. But can they also withstand an earthquake? (Photo: Evershelter)

Students recreate earthquakes in the laboratory

A group of engineering students has built an earthquake simulator that can very precisely recreate historical earthquakes in the laboratory. They can now carry out full-scale safety tests on small buildings.

The Grundfos hall of residence at the Port of Aarhus is no ordinary building. It uses energy when there is plenty of solar and wind power, and it ‘hibernates’ when the power in the energy grid comes from fossil fuels. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)
A technical room has been set up in the basement of the building, with equipment that provides monitoring of the energy consumption in all the apartments at intervals of a few seconds. Pictured here are Associate Professor Steffen Petersen (right) and PhD student Michael Dahl Knudsen – both from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. (Photo: Henrik Olsen)

Intelligent buildings make our energy consumption greener

It is possible to shift our energy consumption to times of the day when there is plenty of power from renewable sources such as solar and wind. At least to a certain extent if we invest in technology for intelligent management of our buildings. This is the conclusion of researchers in connection with the completion of one of the world’s most…

Large conference to prepare the agriculture of the future

The role of technology in the agriculture of the future will be scrutinised at the end of the month when Aarhus University hosts the International Conference on Agricultural Engineering 2016.

A team of Aarhus University engineering students has built a robot that can search for possible life on Jupiter’s moon Europa. They have now succeeded in being selected to compete next week in the 2016 MATE international ROV competition hosted by NASA in Houston. (Photo: Colourbox)

AU ENGINEERING 2025 – strengthening the field of engineering at Aarhus University

The Aarhus University Board has approved the Senior Management Team’s recommendation to strengthen the field of engineering at Science and Technology (ST) until 2025. The Board’s decision means that Aarhus University (AU) supports the development of engineering with an amount of DKK 113 million altogether up to 2021 via the Senior Management…
