Radical inventions carried out by M.Sc. in Engineering students at Aarhus University

Here you are invited to see what the Master of Science in Engineering students at Aarhus University can do within innovation in an ambitious and relatively pressurised course. Not only the winning pitches but all the pitches are ready to show what they can do.

For the past four months, all M.Sc. students in Engineering (almost 250 students) have, as part of their 9th semester, followed the subject Innovation & Entrepreneurship. They have not only learned about innovation and entrepreneurship: In 54 groups across the four widely differing fields of study at the engineering department, they must also make real innovations and present their inventions at a large scale pitching session on May 14 in Skejby. The groups have created different disruptive and radical inventions including patent descriptions based on challenges within healthcare, agriculture and sustainable energy.

These inventions and breakthroughs will be presented during an official pitching session for professors and lecturers at the department as well as business leaders and innovators. This is designed to help the students learn how to make a pitch. During the official pitch the most expressive and creative pitch/presentation as well as the level of implemented engineering skills (not necessarily the most realistic or profitable) will be found from a combination of the experts rating the pitches and the students rating their classmates. The “winning” teams will be presented and celebrated at the public pitch.

This takes place on Tuesday 14 May 2019 from 16:00 - 18:00

(Official pitch from 13:00 – 16:00 same day).

Location: Aarhus University's new facilities for testing, testing, makerspace and much more - a perfect framework for presenting inventions to future challenges:
