The Faculty of Technical Sciences has special focus on sustainability and green transition. Through research we develop new knowledge, methods, materials and solutions that help solve the global societal challenges described in the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
A strong combination of engineering sciences and research and innovation in the environment, agro and food areas, as well as research-based public-sector consultancy within these areas, provides the faculty with enormous potential to make strong contributions to resolving major societal challenges.
The faculty is very involved in Aarhus University's interdisciplinary centres, the purpose of which is to develop solutions to the world's 'Grand Challenges', as research collaboration across traditional disciplinary boundaries and with the business community creates an ideal platform to develop new, innovative and sustainable products, materials, types of energy and revolutionary solutions.
