High-technological faeces will detect bowel problems

A new measurement method will make life easier for people with defecation problems. A group of engineering students in Aarhus is collaborating with Chinese researchers to develop intelligent artificial faeces that can reveal what causes bowel problems in people who go to the toilet too infrequently, too often or too late.

Carpenter Prize 2015 awarded to Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard

Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard, Department of Engineering, has been awarded the Danish Carpenter Prize (Tømrerpris) for his work with wood as a building material.

Stine Pedersen won this year’s European university competition in indoor environment technology. She built a small machine that registers indoor environment conditions for the first time, as well as providing feedback from people in the room. Her initial empirical study indicates that the way we experience indoor comfort is much more subjective than researchers previously thought. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
