Danish Technical University (DTU)
Technical University 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. DTU – Technical University of Denmark is a vibrant technical university, recognized for its high level of international research and its sought-after graduates. Through collaboration, our staff and students reach out to the world and work across disciplines to create value, welfare, and growth by developing technologies, that work in a globalized world, transcending social and cultural differences. Great ideas change the world, and we are driven by the desire to develop sustainable technologies that create jobs and new opportunities. At DTU, researchers and students collaborate with industry and government to create innovative solutions at the intersections of engineering and creativity, theory and practice, and university and society. The international dimension is of vital importance to DTU. In 2019, we welcomed more than 700 international students into our MSc programmes, half of our PhD students are recruited from abroad, and more than one third of our scientific staff are highly qualified researchers of international backgrounds. In addition, the extent and intensity of our collaborations with other leading technical universities around the world continue to grow.
