All tuition in General Engineering is in English, and the study programme is therefore intended for both Danish and international students.
About half of the students and lecturers on the programme have an international background. In this way, you become a part of an international study environment which prepares you for a career in the global labour market.
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 like an engineer.
The General Engineering programme is a technical-scientific undergraduate study programme.
The programme’s first two semesters consist of mandatory courses. Emphasis is on the basic natural science courses: mathematics, physics, and chemistry with a technical bias, and design/build projects.
The second and third semester courses introduce you to two of the programme’s four focus areas—Living Systems, Cyber Systems, Advanced Materials, and Future Energy—and in the subsequent semesters you will specialize in one of these fields.
In semester 5 you have the opportunity to spend a semester at a university abroad, work on a project in collaboration with a company, or specialize further at DTU.
In semester 6 the programme concludes with a BSc project.
Depending on your choice of specialization, you can continue your studies on a wide range of MSc Eng programmes at DTU or other universities, or pursue a career internationally.
In the plan there are only courses in English, but courses with an equivalent Danish version, you are allowed to choose the Danish version.
It’s highly recommended to do a project within the industry (with a company)
The BSc project is the final project on the BSc programme. The purpose of the BSc project is to give the student the opportunity to competently formulate, analyze, and process issues within a limited subject area that reflects the emphasis of the programme.
The BSc project may be prepared either individually or as a group project with a maximum of four students.The duration of a BSc project is 9 weeks full time study (including annual leave and public holidays) for a project of 15 ECTS credits.
The BSc project must be approved by the head of studies to ensure that it falls within the programme focus area. The student normally carries out the project in a department relevant to his or her BSc programme. However, subject to agreement with the head of studies, the student may carry out the project in other departments. The student can also do the BSc project in collaboration with a company or another university.
For the specialisation Living Systems, the following course is recommended:
Choose two of the following four courses below:
Choose three of the following courses:
Choose 10 ECTS among those courses:
Choose 15 ECTS among those:
46040 Introduction to energy analytics
If you continue your studies with a master’s degree, you will obtain a combination of broad technical-scientific and specialized qualifications that are in great demand by high-tech companies in Denmark and abroad.
Your experience with real-life cross-disciplinary projects allows you to handle projects from start to finish. Thus, you will be ready to work as a consultant or a project or systems engineer in any job where your role is to serve as the crucial link between colleagues with the different professional backgrounds.
No matter what you choose, the international BSc in General Engineering provides you with a unique profile that will give you a head start in the global labour market.
