AU Engineering Alumni

Join the alumni group

What's an alumnus?

An alumnus is a graduate - that is a former student who has completed a degree programme.

The alumni network at AU Engineering is targeted former students with an engineering degree from Aarhus School of Engineering or Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. We invite all graduates with an engineering degree to join the alumni network.

We also invite current and former staff members as well as exchange students and students from the admission course who have completed at least one semester at AU Engineering.

Why join the AU Alumni network

Joining the Alumni network is free of charge.

You will be part of the Aarhus University Alumni network along with more than 28,500 other alumni from Aarhus University.

You can become member if you are a former student at Aarhus University or a current/former staff member at Aarhus University.


Production has to be in a single, continuous flow in which waste stream is added at one end and, via enzymatic photobiocatalysis with the algae enzymes, is converted into fuel that comes out at the other end, explains Associate Professor Selin Kara (right). Photo: Jesper Bruun

Rare algae enzyme to convert cooking oil into ready-to-use biofuel

Researchers have found an unusual, light-dependent enzyme in microalgae. A new project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, will use the enzyme in a system to produce drop-in fuels from waste oils and fats.

"This is the first time anyone has tried to find a cheaper or corresponding composite solution, but it’s not easy, because the conditions are so harsh," says Simon Heide-Jørgensen, industrial postdoc on the project. Photo: Anders Trærup.

Composite to replace cast iron in harsh maritime environments

Inside the massive engines in the world's largest ships are huge heat exchangers made of cast iron. For the first time, a new research project is looking for an inexpensive composite substitute for the classical iron components, which can cost vast sums to maintain.

The project could "be a huge achievement for the chemicals industry as a whole, as chemical synthesis today is very polluting," says Associate Professor Selin Kara. Photo: Ida Jensen, AU Foto.

She uses mushroom enzyme and light to create green chemicals

By combining nature's own reactions, Associate Professor Selin Kara from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University aims to develop a fully green and sustainable production process for chemicals.
