Denmark

Scene in Denmark

Denmark is a tiny country that has some castles that can only best be described as being magical and this country of mermaids and Vikings as well as delightful pastries and lovely beaches can enchant any tourist, which is why people come here year after year in search of the many pleasures that this Scandinavian country has to offer. You will find something here that caters to every taste. Whether it's the Tivoli Gardens or the popular beaches that can be found in Legoland and no matter what your age is, there is plenty for you to enjoy in Denmark.

MSU College of Engineering students may study Fall and Spring at The Technical University of Denmark in at Lyngby.  Courses at DTU will be offered in English.  The program is sponsored by the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME)  however, students from all departments in the College of Engineering may  participate with department approval: Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering (BE); Chemical Engineering & Materials Science (CHE, MSE); Civil & Environmental Engineering (CE); Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) and Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE).  THE DANISH WAY :  In 1829, when Hans Christian Ørsted founded what became the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), he created an eloquent response to an important need in society: to make use of scientific progress in the service of society by applying technology.  DTU has applied this fundamental idea for the past 177 years. Based on intensive efforts in research, innovation and the transfer of knowledge, DTU has contributed to Denmark achieving a leading position within such diverse fields as design, wind energy, biotechnology, electronics and telecommunication. DTU thereby deserves a substantial share of the credit for Denmark being able, despite its modest size, to create and maintain a welfare society that is the envy of many nations.  DTU, claims the role as a leading force within the technical and natural sciences seriously.

They provide education, research and innovation at a high international level. Further, DTU has strived since 1829 to build sustainable bridges between academia and industry. In 2005, DTU manifested this by such accomplishments as concluding 350 partnership agreements with companies.  This is a great study abroad opportunity for students at MSU, College of Engineering.
