The 4 new departments are:
- DTU Electro
Department of Electrical and Photonics Engineering
- DTU Construct
Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering
- DTU Sustain
Department of Environmental and Resource Engineering
- DTU Wind
Department of Wind and Energy Systems
The list below is updated when the departments have new websites.
National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU Aqua) conducts research, provides advice, educates at university level and contributes to innovation in sustainable exploitation and management of aquatic resources. We investigate the biology and population ecology of aquatic organisms, aquatic physical and chemical processes and ecosystem structure and dynamics, taking account of all relevant natural and anthropogenic drivers.
The department adresses important social and scientific challenges within biotechnology, biomedicine, food technology and human and animal health.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain) at the Technical University of Denmark aims at developing new knowledge and technologies to help facilitate the transformation from the existing oil-based chemical industry to a more sustainable bio-based society in which chemicals are produced biologically.
DTU Chemical Engineering
DTU Chemical Engineering’s main activities lie within the areas of product design, process design and production in the chemical, biotechnological, pharmaceutical, food technological and energy technological industries.
DTU Chemistry is a dynamic Department with a wide array of opportunities. The research is divided into two research areas each with underlying research groups.
DTU Compute is an internationally unique academic environment spanning the scientific disciplines mathematics, statistics, computer science, and engineering. Our interdisciplinary research areas are big data and data science, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), smart and secure societies, smart manufacturing and life sciences.
DTU Civil and Mechanical Engineering develops and utilises science and technical knowledge for the benefit of society and the sustainable development. We undertake research, education, innovation, and scientific advice of the highest quality within building design and processes, building construction and safety, building energy and services, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, materials technology, manufacturing engineering, engineering design and thermal energy systems.
At the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage we work on sustainable energy technologies. In the energy system of the future a large part of the energy will be supplied by fluctuating sources such as solar and wind power. This makes it critically important to be able to convert and store the energy as needed.
DTU Engineering Technology
At DTU Engineering Technology we support the ambition of Technical University of Denmark to train the best engineers in Europe. In close collaboration with industry across courses, student projects and projects with employees we systemically develop tools and methods for technology implementation and hands-on transfer of technology and engineering skills through products and solutions. We are organized in 11 research groups all focusing on technology implementation, engineering technology and engineering education within a wide range of engineering fields.
The Centre is an enabling force for innovation and social and economic change through entrepreneurial capability development across different facets of society - education, industry, government, and DTU. Let's build a better world.
The National Food Institute researches and communicates sustainable and value-adding solutions in the areas of food and health for the benefit of society and industry.
Photonics is the physical science of generation, detection, and manipulation of light. Photonics engineering and technology has become a key enabler for solving our societal challenges, such as good health, sustainability and reduced energy consumption. At DTU Fotonik we focus our research to address a faster, greener and more secure internet, new methods for faster diagnosis of diseases, new solutions to implement sustainable energy solutions and the use of quantum technology for communication and computation.
DTU Health Tech
DTU Health Tech educates the engineers of the future and develop new technology and solutions to improve people’s life before, during and after they are patients. We do this in close collaboration with the health sector, industry, academia and other health partners.
DTU Learn for Life
DTU Learn for Life is DTU's platform for all types of continuing education activities and an exhibition window for DTU's technologies and know-how.
DTU Management conducts excellent research in the intersection between management, technology and economics. We develop solutions in close cooperation with companies and public authorities. Our research aims at strengthening welfare, productivity and sustainability within the society. A key element is the role of technology and its interaction with industry and individuals.
DTU Nanolab is the National Centre for Nano Fabrication and Characterization in Denmark and is owned by and located at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). DTU Nanolab operates and maintains advanced processing equipment within 1350 m2, class 10-100, ISO 9001-certified, open access, pay-per-use cleanroom facilities.
DTU Offshore – Danish Offshore Technology Centre – is Denmark’s national R&D centre for offshore technologies and holds a central position in the energy transition. We develop research-based technology solutions for the offshore industry in the North Sea. Our research encompasses carbon storage, digital solutions for the offshore sector, produced water management, well and platform maintenance, recovery of remaining oil and gas resources, and efficient and responsible abandonment of depleted oil and gas fields.
Department of Physics prioritises research areas within modern physics which represents a significant basic scientific challenge and also has clear application perspectives. The department has a number of state-of-the-art research facilities, including a supercomputer. Furthermore, the Department of Physics coordinates the undergraduate and master study Physics and Nanotechnology.
DTU Skylab is DTU’s living lab for innovation and entrepreneurship. We match state-of-the-art technology and science with an ambitious and open community, where students, researchers and corporate partners meet to exchange knowledge and develop visionary solutions for real-world challenges. At DTU Skylab, the convergence of technologies and talent from different fields, combined with an entrepreneurial mindset, creates a unique culture of innovation and learning for everyone involved in our community. DTU Skylab - This place is yours.
With space as the starting point we do scientific research, develop technology, advice authorities, educate scientists and engineers for the benefit of society. This includes exploring our solar system, the universe, the Earth's magnetic field and monitoring Earth's climate and environment from space.
DTU Sustain is one of the largest university departments specializing in environmental and resource engineering in Europe. We are working to develop new environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies, methods and solutions, and to disseminate this knowledge to society and future generations of engineers.
Department of Wind Energy is a globally leading centre for wind energy with technical-scientific competences in the international front and with a unique integration of research, education and public/private sector consulting.
