Underwater robot reveals surprising new knowledge about icebergs

Using an underwater robot they built themselves, a group of Danish engineering students have photographed a complete iceberg below the ocean surface. This is a breakthrough for international Arctic research.

Another record for AU Engineering was set for the number of visitors to U-days in early March, with more than 800 young people coming to learn more about our engineering programmes. Photo: AU Foto.

Record number of applicants seeking engineering degree programmes in Aarhus

More than ever have applied for engineering programmes at Aarhus University via quota 2. Food and biotechnology are particularly popular.

Smart technologies are only really smart when they can talk together. This also applies to agriculture, where internet-connected machines will pave the way for "agriculture 4.0". Senior researcher Claus Grøn Sørensen is working on just that: getting IoT products from many different manufacturers to be able to talk seamlessly together.

New knowledge about waves to keep oil platforms operational for longer

Open-sea trials will reveal to researchers how waves arise, develop and impact the surroundings. This will make it possible to keep oil platforms in the North Sea operational for longer.

How we solve the problems of today with the technology of tomorrow

The stage was set for inspiring ideas at the official opening of the ORBIT Lab on Wednesday 13 December, when Aarhus University staff and students were invited along with representatives from the business sector – and many interesting technological innovation projects were displayed.

"In this project, we have started a journey to construct a cognitive computing system as a proof of concept," says Associate Professor Farshad Moradi, Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
