Tomorrow’s engineering systems depend on world-class research

Socio-technical engineering systems increasingly shape modern lives, and it is our ambition to understand and improve the ways in which we can design and manage these systems.

What is the most efficient way of providing healthcare to a population? How can we improve critical infrastructure? Is there a method for optimizing global supply chains? Can energy be distributed in a smarter way? These are the types of questions that occupy the minds of the academic staff in the Engineering Systems division.

Value-adding collaborations

The Engineering Systems divisions is eager to collaborate with a wide range of partners. Through our many partnerships with research institutions, companies, and public authorities, we have developed new and ground-breaking methodologies and tools for the design, operation and management of engineering systems. If you are interested in a partnership or a chance to collaborate with us, please learn more here. Learn more about our research and current projects here.

An international environment of leading academics

Our research group consists of close to 40 academics from all parts of the world. Academics and students come to DTU because of its renowned status as a leading technical university, but also because of our international profile. More than half of our PhD students are recruited abroad, and our research results benefit greatly from the diverse group of highly qualified researchers with very different backgrounds.
