Program Description:

Technical University of Denmark

DTU 1     DTU 2     DTU 3        
Copenhagen is one of the oldest capital cities in Europe and a major center of culture and commerce in Northern Europe. The city is located on the islands of Zealand and Amager and several smaller islands. It is bordered on the east by the Oresund River with Sweden directly across the river. Copenhagen is considered to be one of the world’s most livable cities with its attractive mix of architecture, lively culture, green space and waterscapes, and its high standard of living. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly cities with its emphasis on public transport and bicycles. Although Danish is the official language of Denmark, English is widely spoken in Copenhagen.

The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is the main training and research institution for engineering in Denmark. It is a leader in design and engineering for the Scandinavian region and renowned internationally for its teaching and research. DTU promotes an interactive educational approach with a high level of group project work. It is a campus-based university located in Lyngby on the outskirts of Copenhagen. This location benefits students with a lively campus community and easy access to the city. DTU enrolls over 11,000 students, with 20% being international students.

At the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), over 600 courses are taught in English. Exchange students have flexibility to combine courses in different departments.
Available fields include:
  • Aquatic Science & Technology
  • Biotechnology & Food Technology
  • Civil & Environmental Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Human Life Sciences
  • Management of Engineering
  • Mathematics & Informatics
  • Mechanical Engineering & Materials
  • Physics & Nanotechnology
  • Sustainable Energy
  • Telecommunication & ICT
  • Transportation & Logistics
Exchange students take courses with their DTU counterparts. DTU operates on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The Office of Study Abroad Programs converts half credit for ECTS credits. For example, a 6 ECTS credit course taken at DTU will convert back as 3 UB credits. In some cases a course at DTU may be worth 5 ECTS credits which will be rounded up to 3 UB credits (not 2.5 credits). Students should enroll in a minimum of 24 ECTS credits per semester to earn 12 UB credits (full time status); however, most students enroll in 30 ECTS credits per semester to earn 15 UB credits. Please see the Office of Study Abroad Programs with any questions on credit conversion. E stands for autumn semester (“efterår” in Danish) and F stands for the spring semester (“forår” in Danish).

Courses may count for major, minor and general education credit with approval from your department.  Please search the DTU course catalogue for specific course information (be sure to select "English" as language of instruction). To learn more about studying at DTU, please watch this video on the Academic Experience.
DTU manages a number of rooms in the Campus Village. These are single rooms with shared kitchens and bathrooms. Rooms are also available in nearby dormitories, student houses, and private rentals. Student housing is in high demand so a specific type of housing is not guaranteed. Exchange students will apply for housing upon acceptance to DTU.  Visit the DTU housing website for more information.
