AAU – Dep. of Development & Planning

The field of the Department includes development and planning in a broad sense, and thereby it reaches from the social science aspects of development (technological, environmental, international and administrative aspects) to physical planning, sector planning, land management, and to technical subjects such as road engineering, road safety, surveying and mapping.

BLAEST – Blade Test Centre A/S


With more than 30 years of experience, BLAEST is a leading service provider of structural wind turbine blade testing, playing a pivotal role for its clients by testing if new blade types have sufficient strength and durability for the entire lifetime as per the requirements defined in design standards. At the test facility, BLAEST conducts a wide range of tests and analyses, including static proof tests, fatigue tests and stiffness tests.

Currently, the test centre is able to handle blades up to 80+ m length, but plans are to establish facilities for testing blades of more than 100 m length, when and if the demand arises.

As an additional service, BLAEST is also able to offer clients the option of having test facilities established on-site, both in the domestic market as well as internationally.

AAU – Dep. of Mech. Engineering


Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (M-Tech) is an innovative research and educational environment at Aalborg University. The mission of the department is to create knowledge about mechanical and manufacturing engineering within the areas of industrial production and mechanical systems and transfer this knowledge to graduates, society, consumers and businesses. Knowledge building is based on strategic and application-oriented research with a generic character.

The research and teaching of the department is oriented towards production conditions in the private and public sector and contain elements such as production, materials science, logistics, IT, organisation, product development, automation, mechanics and management.

The profile of the department is highly interdisciplinary. The fields of work give many opportunities for collaborating with the surrounding world. This also affects the research that often is carried out in collaboration with companies on an international standard.

Surroundings at M-Tech
The department has the disposal of several laboratories with modern equipment within the areas of cutting operations, welding, computer integrated manufacturing, plastics, testing and characterisation of materials, including polymers, metal, ceramics and microcellular and much more.

Aalborg Universitet – Matchmaking

AAU offers a full palette of opportunities for collaboration that applies equally to small and medium businesses and to large – from working with students on projects or internships, to networking of researchers and practitioners (around specific subject areas), to opportunities to make use of university laboratory facilities, to more binding cooperation on research and development, just to mention some of the possibilities. Common to these options is the scientific focus and an approach that in most cases benefits both the company and the researcher.

If your knowledge of AAU is limited, it may seem confusing to find the right approach to collaboration. To help you get started, Aalborg University has established AAU Matchmaking; a strong network of matchmakers who can guide you to the right researchers, students and test facilities.

AAU – Dep. of Electronic Systems


The Department of Electronic Systems is one of the largest departments at Aalborg University with a total of more than 300 employees. The department is internationally recognized, in particular for its contributions within Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

The research and teaching of the Department of Electronic Systems focus on electrical engineering, and the areas of activity are organized in five sections.

The department’s success – both as an origin of new research and as a basis of many people’s work place – is conditioned by a common set of values. This is based on the fundamental premise that a department is both a professional and a social/organizational frame around technical activities where it is necessary to consciously create a balance between technical challenges and human confidence. Their central values are threefold:

Openness and respect – there has to be room for professional development with respect for motivation and commitment from the individual employee and student.

Innovation and creativity – they have to be at the frontline both professionally and organizationally and always strive to create new knowledge and basis for its implementation in the community.

Visibility and usability – Their knowledge is only valuable if it is useful to the students, our national and international colleagues as well as the community, which depends on the department’s visibility.
