leadENG Student Projects - Aalborg University

LeadENG projects offer a unique opportunity for collaboration across fields of study and disciplines. By working on the project, you gain a special understanding of your own discipline seen in the context of related areas. This ability is in demand when the industry delivers sustainable and interdisciplinary solutions to society's major challenges, across disciplines and industries. For example, Søren Hageman Christensen, Regional Director at NIRAS, says:

To solve tomorrow's tasks, we are experiencing a growing need for employees who, in addition to their own specific disciplinary insight, also have an understanding of holistic solutions across disciplines. Optimal sustainability is often found in a balanced solution between several technical, social and economic areas of interest. So it’s important that our future employees have an eye for each other's areas of expertise and the ability to put each other’s skills in play.

ENG After Hours

At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, we have started a new concept that we call ENG After Hours. ENG After Hours consists of extracurricular activities where we bring our students across the faculty together for events that are both academic and social. The purpose of ENG After Hours events is to strengthen the students' own academic competence and give them a look at other disciplines. The events are also intended to enhance their social life and well-being across programmes. We see this as a way to inspire our students to open their minds early in their studies to the many opportunities they have, and to think about careers, study, and the life they live together.
