Description

Developing and optimising chemical and biotechnological processes plays a key role in modern society. It is predicted that the industry of the future will be characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient. As a graduate in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering, you will be developing the processes of the future – processes that will ensure that chemical, biotechnological and environmental knowledge finds sustainable applications to benefit society as a whole. 

Career Opportunities  

The MSc in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering is closely linked to the active research and development environment that exists in the Aarhus region. Through close interaction with companies during the MSc Engineering programme, the students become better prepared to meet future challenges in large companies such as Merck, Dupont and Bayer, to mention a few. Students are strongly encouraged to spend time abroad, either as exchange students at a university abroad or for the thesis.

Aarhus University School of Engineering

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.
