Drug recycling and 'banapples': Engineering innovation captures Skejby

AU Engineering's new research facility, the Deep Tech Experimental Hub in Skejby, was crammed with engineering students when this year's "invention pitch" kicked off.

On May 3, the Department of Engineering opened the 2,100 sqm. research facility Deep Tech Experimental Hub. The hub is a critical element in the build-up of the research-based, engineering programs, which is a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Photo.

Prestigious funding for new engineering projects

On Thursday, four researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University received grants from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. In total, Science and Technology has received a total of DKK 133.4 mill. (EUR 17.7 mill.), divided between 39 projects.

"Engineering is about translating deep theoretical knowledge into solutions to real issues, and I see this solution-oriented approach again and again from our students," says Thomas Toftegaard, head of department. One of the university's engineering students is Soffi Ester Olesen (in the photo), and she also uses her education to make a difference. On her second semester, she has helped develop a greenhouse gas membrane. Photo: Lars Kruse.

Engineering students to present 54 ideas for a better world

As many as 250 engineering students from different study programmes at Aarhus University have spent a semester inventing patentable ideas for technological solutions to three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The inventions will be presented at a major event on 14 May.

"Designing electronic systems today is very often a matter of trial and error, and it costs a lot of money and takes a long time. If you can make the workflow simple and virtual with a model that simulates perfectly the finished product, you can save an awful lot of time and money," says Christian Møldrup Legaard, who, as an MSc in Engineering student will be attached to the new AU Centre for Digital Twins, which opens on 6 May.

New centre for digital twins: "The idea of being able to design and debug the entire system before you build it is absolutely fantastic"

24-year-old Christian Møldrup Legaard is studying for an MSc in Engineering in computer engineering. He will soon be a part of Aarhus University's new Centre for Digital Twins, and he believes that this new trend in digital systems can save a lot of money and grey hair.
