Technical University of Denmark - DTU

Introduction

Benefitting society on a global scale

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted—the father of electromagnetism—who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s scientific advice.

The number of student enrolment is higher than ever and, for the eleventh consecutive year, we have received a record-breaking number of applications from students who want to pursue a degree from a technical elite university with a global outlook.

The international dimension is of vital importance to DTU. In 2015, we welcomed over 600international students into our MSc programmes, half of our PhD students are recruited from abroad, and more than one third of our scientific staff are highly qualified researchers of international backgrounds. In addition, the extent and intensity of our collaborations with other leading technical universities around the world continue to grow.

DTU has international educational exchange programmes with over 200 universities around the globe, and enjoys close research collaborations with our partners in addition to building research and educational programmes with the Nordic Five Tech Alliance, the Euro Tech Universities Alliance, KAIST in South Korea, the Sino-Danish Center in Beijing, Rensselaer in the U.S., and Nanyang in Singapore.

The bachelor's programme (BSc) in General Engineering is a new international BSc programme at DTU. The programme gives you broad engineering competencies, a solid technical-scientific foundation, and a strong international profile that prepares you for a challenging career in a global labour market. The programme is offered for the first time in 2016. International profile The programme gives you broad engineering competencies, a solid technical-scientific foundation, and a strong international profile that prepares you for a challenging career in a global labour market. The BSc is taught exclusively in English, and you will be part of an international study environment with students from all over the world. Design/build projects You will be working on design/build projects during all six semesters. A design/build project is a practice-oriented group project in which your team solves a specific problem, going through the problem-solving phases typically experienced by engineers. This ensures that you learn to adopt an engineering approach during the programme. During the fifth semester you can study abroad at another university or work on a project in a Danish company. Specializations From the second year onwards, you begin to specialize in one of the four research areas where DTU and the Danish business sector are strongly represented: Living Systems Cyber Systems Cyber Materials Future Energy Future perspectives With a BSc in General Engineering you can—depending on your choice of specialization—apply for admission to a number of MSc programmes at DTU or another university. Possibilities include Biotechnology, Computer Science and Engineering, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering, or Sustainable Energy. Study programme Technical-scientific undergraduate programme The General Engineering programme is a technical-scientific undergraduate study programme. At the beginning of the programme, you are required to take a number of mandatory courses such as mathematics, physics and chemistry and you will experience the engineering spirit through design/build projects. In the final part of the programme you will specialize in one of the subject areas ‘living systems’, ‘cyber systems’, ‘cyber materials’ or ‘future energy’. Depending on your choice of specialization, you can continue your studies on a wide range of MSc programmes at DTU or other universities or pursue a career internationally. Programme structure and content The programme’s first two semesters consist of mandatory courses. Emphasis is placed on the basic natural science courses mathematics, physics, and chemistry with a technical bias, and design/build projects. During the second and third semesters, you must also choose two of the four courses that introduce you to one of the study programme’s four areas of specialization. These will help you choose the direction for further specialization. Entry Requirements You can apply for the programme on the basis of a Danish qualifying exam, or an equivalent international exam. In addition to having a upper secondary education leaving exam, you must have specific levels in English, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Students holding a Danish qualifying exam are required to have: English B Mathematics A Physics B and Chemistry B or Physics B and Biotechnology A or Geoscience A and Chemistry B Students holding an international qualifying exam are required to have levels equivalent to the above. Nordic students and holders of an IB please read these instructions. Students with other international exams can find the information in the Exambook made by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science. English B corresponds to the testscores below: IELTS 6.5 TOEFL internet-based 88 TOEFL paper-based 573 TOEFL computer-based 230 Pearson 59 Cost & fees Higher education in Denmark is provided free of charge for all EU/EEA citizens and for students participating in an exchange programme. All other students have to pay tuition. Admission & deadlines If you hold a Danish qualifying exam: 15 March (quota 2) or 5 July (quota 1) If you hold an international qualifying exam: 15 March *Please note that all non-EU/EEA applicants are required to pay an application fee of €100 [-]
