Technical University of Denmark offers an international three-year English-taught BSc in General Engineering where you will ultimately learn to think and work as an engineer. The program focuses on the broad and general engineering competences, provides students with a solid grounding in mathematics, physics, and chemistry and simultaneously teaches students to work across disciplines to be able to apply them in solving actual problems.

Throughout the program students have the unique opportunity to work on design-build projects which are practice-oriented. Students also work on an interdisciplinary group project where they’ll propose an engineering solution to a specific problem from the real world. This ensures students become familiar with the engineering approach when it comes to solving problems which also teaches them to communicate and liaise with their group to find the best solutions in real-life settings – an essential element for engineers who wish to embark on a career on a global scale.

Please also note that spaces are limited with only 150 students admitted per academic intake.

Admissions process

To begin your application process, you must do so through the online application portal. You should then ensure that you complete and submit all necessary documentation, including your CV and personal statement (which must be written in English).
