The big improvement is attributable to the engineering degree programmes. While intakes to engineering programmes are declining in the rest of Denmark, the trend is fully the opposite in Aarhus.

This year, more than one in seven places at Aarhus University have been awarded to an engineering student, and this is in line with the university's plans and the needs of the business community, says Finn Borchsenius, vice-dean of the Faculty of Technical Sciences.

"We’ve been working hard to strengthen the engineering area for several years, so we’re delighted to see such great interest in our degree programmes from young applicants. This is also good news for the many companies that need engineers more than ever," he says.

The Bachelor of Engineering Programme in software technology is the high jumper of the year, offering places to 158 applicants; more than twice as many as in 2019.
