Technology's response to major global problems

Engineering is the key to technological revolutions. It links deep theoretical science to its creative applications, and for centuries engineering has been changing the world.

At the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University, our highly-skilled researchers are creating sustainable technological solutions to some of society’s greatest challenges. Through nationally and internationally recognised technical and scientific research, we strive to contribute to sustainable development for the global community: to forge green solutions to borderless global challenges within climate, energy, food, health, the environment, construction and much more. 

The Department of Engineering was established in 2011, and today the department brings together research activities at Aarhus University within the technical and natural sciences.

Our research activities have strong focus on deep technical skills within the classical engineering disciplines of biotechnology, chemical engineering, construction, electrical engineering, computer engineering and mechanical engineering.
