New project to minimise heat stress in pigs

Heat stress in highly productive sows in subtropical and tropical regions is a major problem, and if the sows are not cooled down, the consequences can have major economic and animal welfare impacts. A new ventilation project will tackle this issue.

Experimental funding for bold new engineering projects

Can we use ancient paper techniques to create new materials and ultramodern technology that can help us discover nature's own antibiotics? Two new projects at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, which aim to accomplish exactly this, are among the projects being funded in a new programme under the Villum Fonden foundation.

Research project identifies huge productivity potential in construction

A major new study from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University shows that only one-third of the working hours in construction are spent on value-adding work. This means that there are many opportunities for optimisation in most builders’ working day. However, it's not that builders aren’t working hard, say the researchers.

Engineering student develops bioreactor to grow heart valves from human cells

This could be the end artificial heart valves. That’s the goal of Aarhus University, and in a Master’s thesis project, Buster Skyum, an MSc in Engineering student from Department of Engineering, has helped the university take its first step towards growing biologically active heart valves made of human cells. Such valves will never need to be…

Engineering talents want to come to Denmark to learn about wind

When engineering students want to learn about wind technology, they look to Denmark. Over recent weeks, some of the world's sharpest minds have gathered at Aarhus University to take part in the International Wind Power Summer School.

Number of women on engineering programmes surges

Aarhus University is currently experiencing a veritable boom in the number of female applicants for engineering programmes. According to the business community, this is a positive trend in several ways.

New associate professor will raise Danish drone research to new heights

Erdal Kayacan – Ph.D. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul – is a new associate professor at the Department of Engineering in Aarhus University. The main focus of Dr. Kayacan’s research is guidance, navigation and control of aerial robots.

For many years, carbon dioxide has been released into the atmosphere as pollution. But we might have to change the way we think about this greenhouse gas and see it instead as a valuable resource in our energy production. The reason for this is that researchers can transform the greenhouse gas into clean and sustainable methane gas that can subsequently be stored and distributed through our existing natural gas grid.

Researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University are behind the world’s most comprehensive pilot tests of high-temperature electrolysis, and the technology seems promising. In just a few years, it will be possible to roll out the technology throughout Denmark. It will cover one-tenth of our total energy need, while considerably reducing emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Researchers from Department of Engineering transform carbon dioxide into green super gas

The primary ingredients are water, power from wind turbines and a large amount of carbon dioxide that would otherwise have to be released straight into the atmosphere. The result is an artificially produced version of natural gas with a huge green potential.

Engineering students count parasitic mites in an instant

Parasitic mites are one of the main reasons why the death rate for honey bees in Denmark is increasing. Now, two engineering students have developed a system that makes it possible to map the extent of the problem, and at the same time reduce pesticide consumption.

Can you measure quality of view?

Two engineering students from Department of Engineering have written a Master's thesis, which may influence the construction of student accommodation in the future. In collaboration with researchers, they have developed and tested a formula that makes it possible to calculate the quality of the view from small student flats.

Built on instability

Instability is a common feature in nature. But mankind is not yet really started to reap the benefits of nature's elastic and structural instabilities, that has spawned from eons of evolution.
