The main focus of the Aarhus University's Engineering PhD programme is on applied research, and we enjoy strong collaboration with the industry on core issues such as next generation building environment, energy systems, materials, embedded ICT-based systems, production technologies and novel products with improved functionality.


The Engineering PhD programme from Aarhus University covers four research areas:

  • Biological and Chemical Engineering
  • Civil and Architectural Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical and Materials Engineering

Research facilities available

Within all four engineering fields, advanced laboratory facilities are available. Graduate students are expected to take part in developing novel equipment. Collaboration with the industry also ensures access to state-of-the-art industrial R&D facilities.

Employment after graduation

Most engineering graduates take up a career in the industry or in consultancy; both are areas where project leadership is important, and this often becomes a stepping stone towards leadership.
