Science and Technology was established 1 January 2011 with the union of the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and the National Environmental Research Institute (NERI).
As of 1 January 2012, the faculty also merged with the Engineering College of Aarhus. The Engineering College is now a school under Science and Technology offering study programmes and educational activities for the Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Science in Engineering degrees.
Science and Technology comprise twelve departments, a school, a major interdisciplinary centre (iNano) and a number of larger and smaller centres as well as two national centres.
Teaching is organised in three schools: the Aarhus School of Science (ASOS) for the science programmes, the Aarhus School of Engineering (ASE) for the engineering programmes and the Aarhus Graduate School of Science (GSST) for the PhD programmes.
Science and Technology is also home to four of the university’s museums that welcome approximately 80,000 visitors every year.
Science and Technology offers sixteen Bachelor’s programmes, eight Bachelor of Science in Engineering programmes and twenty-eight Master’s programmes, nine of which are Master of Science in Engineering programmes. A smaller number of continuing and further education programmes are also offered.
Science and Technology offers programmes in conjunction with Business and Social Science, Health and VIA University College. The faculty also offers a preparatory course for the engineering programmes at the upper secondary level.
