Aalborg University | AAU | Denmark
Aalborg University (AAU) was inaugurated in 1974 as the fifth Danish university with more than 20,000 students registered. AAU conducts teaching and research in the fields of Humanities, Engineering, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Medicine. The Architectural Engineering division of the Department of Civil Engineering is concerned with research and education in the analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineering systems. It focuses on an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to achieve optimal building designs and pays special attention to their impacts on the indoor as well as the surrounding environment. This implies integration of architectural design with engineering systems and other key players in all areas of the building process.
In PROF-TRAC AAU will participate in the development and implementation of the educational portal and the “train thetrainers” programme.
