Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


"What’s going on in Aarhus?" asks the management of National Instruments, the multinational test instruments and software group. "How can a single university have so many talented engineering students?" Four teams have qualified for the finals of the worldwide contest for engineering students: the NI Student Design Contest. Three of these teams come from AU Engineering. (Photo: Peer Klercke).
