Aalborg University (AAU) is a public university established in 1974 and located in Aalborg city in Denmark. AAU adopted the strategy “Knowledge for the World” in October 2015, which has been guiding the university’s continued efforts to meet global challenges and opportunities.
AAU’s academic programs cover bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees. Its unique approach to education—The Aalborg Model—is different from other traditional universities in the country as it’s an interdisciplinary, problem-centric, and project-based model of learning. Students spend their academic studies trying to understand real-life problems encountered in society, business, etc. They then search for possible solutions using a scientific approach to problem-solving while working in groups.
The Aalborg Model emphasizes collaboration and the strong interplay between faculty and students. It also provides real-world insights via the university’s important and strategic partnerships with the private sector. The institution’s efforts in implementing its pedagogical structure were internationally recognized in February 2015 when it was appointed as the UNESCO Chair in problem-based learning.
Bachelor’s degrees in AAU are three-year programs composed of two semesters per academic year. Students can study programs offered at the main campus in Aalborg or choose to study at AAU’s two other campuses located in Copenhagen and Esbjerg. Examples of bachelor’s programs offered on Aalborg campus are Economics and Business Administration, Art and Technology, Language and International Studies, and Robotics.
On the other hand, master’s programs require students to have completed a bachelor’s degree. But some programs accept applicants with a professional bachelor’s degree. Examples of master’s programs include Medical Biotechnology, Development and International Relations, Entrepreneurial Engineering, and Urban, Energy, and Environmental Planning, among others.
Aalborg University’s existence can be traced all the way back to the 1970s when the Danish Parliament approved a law establishing a university in the city. Four years later, no less than Queen Margrethe II of Denmark inaugurated AAU, which was then named Aalborg University Center (AUC).
In 1994, AUC adopted its current name, Aalborg University, and took on various mergers with other colleges to expand its campuses and academic offerings. For example, the campus in Esbjerg was established through a merger between Engineering College Esbjerg and AAU back in 1995.
Aalborg University is a member of the ECIU or European Consortium of Innovative Universities. Among its notable alumni are Frede Blaabjerg, a Danish researcher in the areas of power electronics and renewable energy; Birkir Hólm Guðnason, CEO of Icelandair; and Erik Bach, Danish music composer.
