Webinar in February

Do you want to study engineering at one of Europe’s best-ranked engineering universities? Teaching at Aalborg University is based on "learning-by-doing" through group work. This means that as part of your engineering education, you work with others and find solutions to real-world problems. Join our webinar February 10th and learn more about our programmes, how to apply, accommodation and student life in Aalborg, Denmark.

With the Materials and Nanotechnology programme at Aalborg University you will work to increase the durability and functionality of materials, and to improve existing products and develop new innovative product, e.g. using nanotechnology.

Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning where you work in a team on a large written assignment often collaborating with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally, and the university is host to a successful UNESCO chair in Problem Based Learning in Engineering Education and a Centre for PBL and Sustainability approved by UNESCO. 

The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, and you will be well prepared for your future career.
