Engineering in Aarhus celebrates its centenary

In November 2015, it is 100 years since the first engineering degree programme was established in Aarhus. Three generations of graduates have been a significant driving force in the industrialisation of the city and the region, and in developing the technology-based society we know today.

Bowling robot ready for the World Robot Olympiad

The only Danish team to qualify for the World Robot Olympiad consists of two engineering students from Aarhus University. They have made a small bowling figure filled with advanced technology hardware. The olympiad takes place in Qatar in early November. Read more (in Danish only) here.

A new form of traffic control can predict the flow of cars via advanced computer simulations and direct each individual motorist in the most appropriate direction, thus avoiding traffic jams. The method can ultimately make the European road network intelligent without notable investments in technological hardware. (Photo: Colourbox)

New technology can reduce traffic jams

Researchers are now taking a new step towards more intelligent traffic management. Individual motorists will reach their destination faster, cheaper and greener. The flow of traffic will be optimally distributed on the roads, and all the coordination will be automatic and wireless via GPS systems in the cars.

Coloured artificial light can regulate our circadian rhythm and provide us with a better sleep quality. But how should the light be combined and interact with daylight? How strong should it be? What colour composition and heat balance are optimal? Could it be thought that the good mix is individual? Researchers are in the process of studying the full potential of circadian rhythm lighting in a pilot study among nursing home residents. (Photo: Colourbox)
Professor Poul Henning Kirkegaard wants a closer understanding of how coloured circadian rhythm lighting and its interaction with the surroundings and daylight can be incorporated into the architecture. He hopes that in the future we will be able to live in buildings that provide better sleep quality. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

Coloured light helps elderly people to sleep better

Researchers at Aarhus University are studying the effect on the elderly of a special form of circadian rhythm lighting. The light changes colour during the day, and the first tests indicate that it can provide a better quality of sleep.

Students from all over the world in Denmark to learn about wind energy

When the engineering students of the world want to learn about wind turbine technology, they turn to Denmark. Forty-four talented young students are attending Aarhus University to take part in the international Wind Power Summer School.

The corridors will be crowded at Navitas, Hangøvej, Katrinebjerg and Herning. A total of 991 young people ticked an engineering degree programme at Aarhus University as their first priority, of which 892 go to AU Engineering, Science and Technology, and 99 to Aarhus BSS.

PhD students win poster awards

Two PhD students have been declared as poster winners in summer schools for young researchers.

Two Danish engineering students have qualified for the finals of the global university competition in developing underwater robots. They are responsible for the electronic and mechanical design of The Little Mermaid – Aarhus University’s entrant. The robot will make it easier to study impassable areas of the Arctic below sea level. Pictured here are Poul Brix and Dennik Ringgaard with The Little Mermaid. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

Underwater robot can provide new knowledge about the North Pole

Two engineering students are responsible for a new robot that can investigate what is hidden beneath the ice in the most impassable areas of the Arctic. They have reached the finals of the global university competition in underwater robotics being held soon in Canada.

An arm from an industrial robot, a scanning head produced in a 3D printer, and a small amount of new robotic technology. These are the main ingredients in the invention made by two students in connection with their now completed MSc project. The patent is in the bag and they will launch an ultrasound robot on the global market in a few months. (Photo: Johannes Hollensberg)

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)
