Description

You will find the answers to many questions in the field of solid-state and fluid mechanics, known by the collective title of applied mechanics. Such questions include: How do you design the blades of a wind turbine? How do you calculate the lifetime of a computer chip or a fuel cell? What surface coatings are suitable for tools, and what should you use for hip-joint implants? How do you analyse the dynamics of a racing car? How do you configure the sail of a boat as efficiently as possible?   These examples demonstrate that applied mechanics is a subject with great scope for interdisciplinary collaboration. Working with the conventional machinery industry is one option, but there are also opportunities for collaborating with manufacturers of composites and materials, the electronics industry, the construction industry and in fields such as biomechanics and biomaterials.   Mechanics is also a basic engineering research discipline that is on the move internationally and is represented at most universities all over the world. This makes a career as a researcher in this field yet another option.

As a graduate from this programme, you will be capable of understanding and applying advanced calculation methodologies, such as the finite element method (FEM) and multidisciplinary simulation tools. The emphasis of the degree programme is on providing an opportunity to apply theory to practical issues and on providing the expertise necessary to go on to a PhD. The content includes elements such as fluid dynamics (CFD), structural dynamics and modal analysis, and fracture mechanics and fatigue. The basis for these competencies includes continuum mechanics, elasticity theory and plasticity theory.

Career opportunities

Graduates typically find jobs within R&D departments in industrial companies, but with the backup provided by a graduate engineering degree, you can also pursue a career as a researcher at a university in Denmark or abroad.

Description

The engineering discipline at Aarhus University is anchored in two organisational units: the Department of Engineering (ENG) and the Aarhus University School of Engineering (ASE).

The department was established in 2011 and is responsible for all research and development activities and talent development in the technical science field.
 
On 1 January 2012, the former Engineering College of Aarhus merged with Aarhus University and now brings together eight B.Eng programmes, three technical BSc programmes and eight MSc.Eng programmes. The programmes are practically oriented, and all three levels include collaboration with the industry. The interplay between the department and the school ensures that our engineering graduates are well equipped to transform scientific knowledge and engineering know-how into valuable solutions for society.  

Strong engineering framework
This organisation of the engineering discipline at Aarhus University forms a solid framework for operation and development of engineering education in accordance with market demand, for a unique model of cooperation with the industry and for a strongly expanding research environment. 
 
Department of Engineering and Aarhus University School of Engineering are united in a common goal of ensuring a clear correlation between societal investment in the engineering discipline and the contribution of the engineering discipline to a stronger Danish economy.
