The academic staff here are readily accessible if you need clarification of the course material or guidance on project work. Teaching takes place both in the form of lectures that introduce new angles on the course material, and through theoretical and practical exercises which often occur in smaller groups in which the students can study the topics in depth.


At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students, so you will have plenty of opportunities to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students!


The MSc in Computer Engineering prepares students for the national and international job market. Our graduates have found jobs across a wide range of fields and institutions. There is considerable demand for Computer Engineering graduates in Denmark and globally. Many graduates are working as software architects or developers of large instruments and systems, or have become software developers or project managers for large IT systems.
