is an internationally renowned university and is among the top technical universities in Europe and the World. The university educates engineers at the Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. levels and has approximately 2,000 researchers, 10,000 students, 1,500 Ph.D. Around 40% of our MSc students come from outside of Denmark.

DTU was founded in 1829 by the father of electromagnetism, H. C. Ørsted, whose vision was to create a polytechnical institution that would benefit society through natural and technical sciences. This vision has placed DTU among the top 10 universities in the world when it comes to making collaborations with industry.

Master Programmes

DTU’s 2-year Master programmes are research-based programmes at the highest technological level. In these programmes, students acquire the qualifications and skills necessary to analyse, synthesize and evaluate theory and experiments relating to complex engineering systems, problems, and solutions. All Master programmes are taught exclusively in English. Honour programmes are offered by each Master programme. An emphasis on the global markets is also present in the strategic alliances such as the EuroTech Universities, Nordic5Tech, KAIST, and a number of Joint International Programmes. Combined with exchange students from roughly 200 partner universities, DTU is a university whose campus has a distinctive international atmosphere.

BSc in General Engineering

DTU offers an international 3-year BSc in General Engineering. This programme focuses on the broad and general engineering competences. The programme provides you with a solid grounding in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, and simultaneously teaches you to work across disciplines and apply them to solve actual problems. Throughout the entire programme you will work on design-build projects, which are practice-oriented, interdisciplinary group projects.

Together with your group, you will propose an engineering solution to a specific problem from the real world. This will make you familiar with the engineering approach to solving problems, and teach you to communicate and work together with your group to find the best solutions in real-life settings. Put briefly: you learn to think and work as an engineer.

DTU's main campus is located in Lyngby in a green environment at the outskirts of Copenhagen. The campus is a 25-minute bus ride away from Copenhagen enabling all students to enjoy all elements of the cultural and historical sights of an European capital. BEng students live at the Ballerup Campus which is approximately 10 km from Copenhagen.
