About the University 🏫

Engineers in Soenderborg at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) are not only trained and educated in the latest technology and methods, but they also learn how to work in teams and communicate with other professions. The School of Engineering has attracted local and international students and offers bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Software Engineering.

Studying in Denmark is free for EU students, and the relationship between students and lecturers is rather informal - you don't look down on the student and you can talk to teachers about other things than only academic topics. In addition, Denmark is not as expensive as it may seem - according to students, prudence and control of expenses mean that the cost of living is similar to those in southern Europe.

International students are an important part of the university. It is worth adding that every fifth SDU student is from outside Denmark. Thanks to the diversity of cultures and the sharing of views and traditions, the experience gained by students is enriched. It is especially important in group work, which thanks to this diversity allows to achieve better results, and students acquire very important skills. For this reason, the university pays special attention to international students - supporting them not only during their studies, but also before their arrival and after graduation.

SDU Soenderborg is truly a dream university. World-class facilities, guaranteed accomodation, international environtment and best of all? Job guarantee after graduation from some of Denmarks largest engineering companies such as Danfoss and Linak.
