Record number of young Danes accepted on engineer programmes

The highest number of new students ever will start their engineer studies on the Danish Technological University (DTU). A total of 1394 students will start on one of the 25 engineer programmes; students that not least the maritime sector desperately needs.

The significant lack of engineers, not least in the maritime sector and in the offshore industry, is looking to become a little bit smaller in the years to come following the acceptance of a record high number of students on the 25 engineer programmes at DTU (Copenhagen) starting this September.

In a press release on Monday 30 July, DTU announces that 489 students have been accepted on a Bachelor of Engineering programme and 905 on a Bachelor in Technical Science (graduate engineer) programme corresponding to an increase of four percent compared to last year’s intake of students and the highest number since 2004.
