Study Programme Rules

The study programmes at DTU consist of courses which include lectures, seminars, classes, practical exercises, projects, etc. A course can have a duration of more than one teaching period.

Language of teaching
BEng and BSc courses are usually taught in Danish. A limited number of courses can be offered in English on other BSc and BEng programmes.Courses on the English-language BSc programme in General Engineering is only offered in English.

All MSc courses are taught in English.

The accademic year
The academic year is divided into six teaching periods:

  • Two 13-week periods in the autumn and spring semesters.
  • Four 3-week periods followed by exams in January, June, July, and August.
  • Three exam periods of about two weeks (May, August and December).

The order and scheduling of mandatory courses, academic content, teaching and working methods, as well as any prerequisites are specified in the programme specifications for each study programme and the individual course descriptions. Mandatory study elements can generally not be taught in July/August exclusively.

Lectures at DTU are generally open to the public. A teacher can, however, deny access to the public due to considerations of space or order and can hence reject listeners who are not registered for the course. Only students registered for the course may participate actively in the class.

If a student wish to do sound or video recording of teaching sessions at DTU, the teacher must approve this in writing prior to the recording. Recordings are only for personal use unless the teacher has allowed publication of the recording, including what kind of publication. Only the teaching itself must be admitted and not fellow students' comments during the course of instruction, unless they have also given consent for the admission.
