Want to collaborate? This is what we are working on at the moment.
When new technology is developed, knowledge about its implementation is crucial to ensure that the new technology is actually put to practical use and benefits society. Technology implementation and innovation are central to the entirety of DTU's operations and to the difference that DTU, as a university, makes for society. DTU Engineering Technology contributes to this part of DTU's work with a special focus on practical applications.
We research technology implementation at all levels, with a particular focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. Through collaborations with companies in education, student projects, and research, we develop tools, methods, and theories for the implementation and hands-on transfer of technology across various industries, including:
- The Manufacturing industry
- The Utilities sector
- Health sector
'Engineering Technology' is the term used internationally for this applied and practice-oriented focus within engineering education and technical research.
Our researchers represent a wide base of different engineering competencies, and we deal with the technical, organizational, and economic aspects of the implementation of sustainable technology and digitalization in companies and society.
Digitalization and sustainability
DTU Engineering Technology contributes, among other things, to addressing the digitalization challenges of SMEs and to increasing companies' sustainability through production transitions and product development in product lines, processes, and business models
The intersection between practice, technology, and implementation, along with its continuous documentation, is simultaneously a vital part of the knowledge foundation upon which the entirety of DTU's BEng programme is built, namely the practice-based foundation. It lends a particular strength to DTU's BEng education that it draws on our unique and robust combination of discipline-specific engineering knowledge in world-leading research environments on one hand, and a solid systematic expertise on the practical interface between theory and implementation on the other.
Based on the numerous educational programs at the institute, we work data-driven to develop and test new formats for practice-based education and innovative learning strategies.
Our research forms part of the basis for continued excellence in engineering education with a practice-anchored and high professional level, enabling graduates to can add value in the job market and future work places from their first day of work.
