AU Engineering has a strong, application focused knowledge environment with close relations to the industry and with emphasis on value creation for society.
The AU Engineering research activities are organised in four engineering areas. You can read more about these and their research activities by following the links in the grey boxes below. Notice that the research activities at AU Engineering are described at the Department of Engineering's website.
Many of the research activities at AU Engineering cut across the four research areas, focusing on topics that are of significant relevance to society for example sustainable energy, medical technology, agriculture and food. Some of these research activities are described under "Research application areas".
The research activities in AU Engineering are organised in four research sections. Across these sections, the department selects a number of research areas that have particular societal relevance or commercial perspectives. Notice that the research activities are described at the Department of Engineering website.
The Department of Engineering conducts research of a high international standard and is at the forefront with the development of new knowledge and technology-based solutions that can improve the quality of life of members of the public, create a greener environment, strengthen the competitiveness of Danish companies or in some other way enhance the value of society.
In the interface between these four research areas, the department regularly selects a number of cross-cutting research initiatives that are of significant relevance to society or have the potential for contributing significantly to the Danish economy.
Education programmes based on research and development
The Department of Engineering collaborates closely with the Aarhus University School of Engineering to promote research and development-based educational programmes for engineering students at all levels so that they attain a strong and competitive expertise profile in a globalised labour market.
