The transforming power of light and electronics

Light and electronics - photons and electrons - are the key bits of tomorrows sustainable society. Where they meet, change is made.

At DTU Electro, we combine the immense possibilities of electrical and photonics engineering. Our research is, among other things, used in the healthcare sector for diagnostics, treatment and improving the quality of life. We research into the development of more sustainable energy systems, safer autonomous systems and a faster, greener and more secure internet.

We are in the process of merging the two former departments, DTU Elektro and DTU Fotonik into the new department, DTU Electro. At the same time, we are integrating the two old websites into a new website, which will be ready soon.

Meanwhile, you can still find relevant content at DTU Fotonik and at DTU Elektro.

Master's degree in Engineering Acoustics

Acoustic engineering helps society by creating healthy acoustic environments and reducing harmful environmental noise. It enables to assist the hearing impaired, to design innovative architectural spaces, as well as to improve the sound quality delivered by loudspeakers and communication devices. 

See the study programme's brochure.
