Engineers break social inheritance

Danish children must take a look at their parents' educational background and income if the want to know how things will be working out for them in the future. But for engineers it is different. They stand out significantly from other professions as pattern breakers.

A simple blood sample  - and the doctors are able to inform the patient whether she has cancer, which type it is and how she will be treated most optimally. During the next three years, researchers from Aarhus University will be working on realising this scenario.

Engineers send lab equipment to Ghana

The new equipment is sparkling in the electronic labs at Aarhus University. The old equipment has been packed into boxes and shipped to Ghana. Engineering students and their teachers are working together on this donation as part of a humanitarian effort..
