Technical University of Denmark Study Abroad Program

The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) was founded in 1829 and is located in Lyngby, Denmark, a northern suburb of Copenhagen. DTU is a world leader in fields such as design, wind energy, biotechnology, electronics and telecommunication. The university's biomedical engineering program is housed in the electrical engineering department and has a strong imaging and medical device program. We recommend that Weldon School students focused on the electrical side of biomedical engineering consider this opportunity, as the senior design project is programming heavy.

Weldon School students may participate in this program only in the fall semester of their senior year. You will complete your senior design project while at DTU, as well as take technical electives.

An email will be sent to Weldon School students with a link to the online application in mid-November each year. Visit Purdue's Technical University of Denmark Program Details page for more information.
