Radical innovation. Under this headline, 275 engineering students explained why their ideas have the potential to disrupt an entire industry. They made their pitches last week at the Applied Innovation in Engineering 2022 event in Stakladen at Aarhus University (AU).
The curve is only heading in one direction for engineering at Aarhus University. In just two years, total revenue has more than doubled, external grants have increased by 17 per cent, and the number of engineering students has grown to more than 4000.
Engineers are in demand like never before. Anyone attending the internship days P-day at Katrinebjerg and Praktik Match at Navitas will know. The events attract more than 130 companies hoping to recruit engineers from Aarhus University. According to the companies, engineers are the bread and butter of their growth.
A new research and development project will bring together the entire value chain in the Danish construction sector to explore the huge, unreleased potential of reusing in new buildings old, prefabricated concrete elements from existing buildings that are to be demolished.
Aarhus University would like to congratulate all the newly graduated MSc and BSc in engineering students.
Aarhus University researchers are involved in a major international research project to develop new decision-making tools for renovation featuring sustainability certification. The tools will be developed and tested directly in the design and construction of Aarhus University's new campus, the University City, which is to be built on the old municipal hospital site.
Temperatures, noise levels and light and air quality have a significant impact on learning for children and young people. A new indoor climate strategy for schools in the City of Aarhus aims to create an optimal indoor climate, and indoor climate experts from AU Engineering at Aarhus University are involved in the project.
Hasan Alsofi graduated as a construction engineer in January 2021. He has now established a building contractor company called 3DCP with his friend Mikkel. Together with the Municipality of Holstebro, they are now building the company's pilot project. Their dream is to become Denmark's first 3D-print contractor and to completely revolutionise the construction industry.
The GO-GRASS and GRØNBIORAF research projects are examining how grass protein could become a sustainable alternative to imported soy. On 24 August, the projects will hold an open house event at Aarhus University in Foulum, and everyone interested is welcome.
The vast majority of applicants for the university's engineering study programmes have been offered a student place. And there are still places available.
