Academic Council

The Academic Council works to ensure DTU’s academic activities are conducted in a participatory and consultative manner, with input from the wider academic community at the University. The Council has responsibility for commenting on the internal allocation of funding, constituting committees that assess applicants for research positions and awarding PhD, doctor and honorary doctor degrees.
