International environment and teaching

The study program is taught in English and is set in an international environment of both Danish and international students. This adds a large degree of freedom to your studies. It is, for example, unproblematic to study abroad for one or two semesters. We have a major network of industrial partners and partner universities throughout the world.

Although GMM is taught in English this does not necessarily imply that we expect flawless English from your very first day. The general idea is that you strengthen your linguistic skills during your studies.

Thus, while from the start you must be able to communicate well in English you will get plenty of opportunities to improve your linguistic skills through dialogue with teachers and fellow students.

Program structure

The Bachelor of Engineering program in Global Management and Manufacturing is a seven-semester program, including a five-month internship in a foreign or Danish company and a final five-month project, which you prepare in cooperation with a company.

Each semester is based on the main theme which will be the focal point for the semester's theory and project work. From the very beginning of the study period, you will be part of a project group working with projects which often use problems faced by companies as a starting point.
