Increase in applications for Technical Sciences

As expected, applications to Denmark’s higher education degree programmes have increased this year – this also applies to Aarhus University, which has received 5% more first-choice applications compared to last year. Preliminary figures show that engineering and IT degree programmes have seen the greatest increase.

Dialogue with employees about the new organisation in the engineering area

A process involving the employees in the engineering area will now be initiated. This means that employees who are affected by the proposal will have the opportunity to enter into dialogue and provide input and experience. This will be done in parallel with the consultation process which started on 17 June.
