Technical University of Denmark
English Name: Technical University of Denmark
Region: Northern Europe
Country/Region: Denmark
Found Year: 1829
Address: Anker Engelunds Vej 1

DTU (Technical University of Denmark) was founded in 1829 by the father of electromagnetism, Hans Christian Ørsted and was modeled along the lines of École Polytechnique in Paris, France. For almost two centuries DTU has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of its founder – to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.


The number of student enrolment is higher than ever and, for the fourteenth consecutive year, we have received a record-breaking number of applications from students who want to pursue a degree from a technical elite university with a global outlook.


The international dimension is of vital importance to DTU. In 2014, we welcomed 538 international students into our MSc programs, half of our PhD students are recruited from abroad, and more than one third of our scientific staff are highly qualified researchers of international backgrounds. In addition, the extent and intensity of our collaborations with other leading technical universities around the world continue to grow.


DTU has international educational exchange programs with over 200 universities around the globe, and enjoys close research collaborations with its partners in addition to building research and educational programs in Nordic Five Tech, the Euro Tech Universities - Excellence in Science and Technology, as well as with Rensselaer in the U.S., Nanyang in Singapore, and KAIST in South Korea.
