Located in Kongens Lyngby, 12 kilometers north of central Copenhagen, Denmark, the Technical University of Denmark was found in 1829 by the initiative of Hans Christian Ørsted as Denmark’s first polytechnic and is now one of the top engineering institutes in Europe.

Specializing in engineering and science, the Technical University of Denmark provides courses ranging from bachelors and masters to Ph.D. level. More than 2000 highly educated and capable lecturers who themselves are researchers develop and carry out these courses.

A board consisting of 10 members governs the University with six members from outside the university, forming the majority. One member is from the scientific staff, the students of the university appoint one from the administration and two.

The Danish Accreditation Institution (a member of ENQA) granted the Technical University of Denmark an institutional accreditation that ensures the quality assurance system of the university is well-functioning, well-described, and well-argued to practice.
