Blue Dot Projects

DTU’s Blue Dot projects are student-driven undertakings that cross boundaries between study programmes, semesters, and departments. 

Blue Dot projects are projects that produce sustainable solutions, and they make high demands on the participants because they run alongside the ordinary teaching schedule.



Why is it called 'Blue Dot'?

The name ’Blue Dot’ refers to the Earth, which—although it is huge—looks like a small blue dot when viewed from space.

While big ideas can appear simple and tangible when seen from the outside, from the inside they are often rather intricate and complex.

The name ’Blue Dot’ thus also refers to an engineer’s ability to remain focues and see the big picture while simultaneously delving into the details in order to solve problems and challenges.
