Technical University of Denmark sees increased number of applicants for Engineering Degrees

Technical University of Denmark has announced that the Engineering program at the university is once again a popular course reflected by the increased number of applications the university has received for these courses. As the applications were closed for quota 1 on Friday at 12 noon, the university received 8,066 applications which is an increase of 8% as against last year's number of applications.

Anders Bjarklev, President of DTU said, "I'm pleased to see that so many people want to study at DTU and contribute to solving society's major challenges. At the same time, it frustrates me that, due to political priorities and reforms, we are not able to admit all those who are qualified, even though the need for engineers in industry is very high and still increasing."

BSc programmes saw the largest increase in number of applications

This year there were a total of 5,342 applicants as against the number of applicants 4,679 last year, which is an increase of 14%. The number of applicants who had Technical University of Denmark as their first priority also increased by 11%.

894 applicants have applied for the English-language BSc programme General Engineering which is once again the most popular programme with 28% increase in the number of applications. BSc programme General Engineering offers students a broad range of skills with focus on providing practical and specific solutions to real-world problems. The curriculum includes Chemistry, Biotechnology, Maths, and Physics, the course provides skills which the students can use in infrastructure, medicine, AI or something else entirely.

DTU's BEng programmes saw a total of 2,724 applications which is a 3% decrease as compared to last year when the application number was 2,795. The combined applications for BSc and BEng programmes were 592 more than the previous year.

DTU aims to explore Sun through future space technology

DTU Space has collaborated with the European Space Agency (ESA) and several other partners to test future space technology for exploring the Sun.

"This new technology will revolutionize future observation methods in space. We have the opportunity to investigate the Sun's mysterious corona. At the same time, we are developing a new concept for exploring the universe," says DTU Space professor John Leif Jørgensen.

Corona is the atmosphere around the Sun where the temperature reaches about 1-2 million degrees Celsius. Until now it is extremely difficult to observe and explore Corona because the sunlight and extreme heat blinds and destroys the instruments aimed at exploring it.
