History

Aalborg University is a young university with only 40 years of history. Since its establishment in 1974, AAU has been characterised by a problem-based and project-oriented teaching method (PBL) – also called the Aalborg Model, and by extensive collaboration with the surrounding society. 

Education

Aalborg University’s study method, The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL) is highly respected both nationally and internationally. The study method is also known as problem based project work and, in brief, this means that in each semester you work closely together with a group of fellow students on a large written assignment. The group work at AAU equips you well for the labour market where skills in cooperation are popular. At the same time, group work also entails an important academic and social dimension.

  • Aalborg University (AAU) provides high-quality research within natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and engineering and health sciences and focuses on strong national and international world class research groups representing the academic areas of the University.AAU secures a high quality level within research and within the research based programmes e.g. by providing special support for the most promising researcher talents.
