Program Description: Danish institutions of higher education have a long tradition of excellence and creativity. Close co-operation between engineering students, professors and industry leads to innovative solutions and new designs.

Although Danish is the national language, English is widely used and the vast majority of Danes speaks English fluently. An increasing number of courses and study programmes are offered in English in order to attract students from abroad and to prepare young Danish graduates to work in a global world.

-Students can select courses from the ordinary engineering programs taught in English and compose a semester of 30 ECTS. 

-Individual programs (courses and/or project work) offered to students from our exchange partner institutions.

  • European Project Semester  (EPS)
  • International Design Semester (IDS)
  • International Business Semester (IBS)
  • International Civil Engineering Semester (ICES)
  • Individually composed programs (6 months - 1 year)

-Every semester most of our exchange students attend the Ballerup Language Center to learn a little the Danish language and about the Danish culture. The course is free of charge for exchange students from all of our partner institutions. The optional course in Danish at Ballerup Language Center is equivalent to 1 ECTS.
