Business collaboration
DTU focuses on innovation and problem solving by exposing students to realistic issues faced by the business community in the classroom. Such exposure may, for example, take the form of cases from local businesses where a group of students works out a given problem for the business.

DTU Diplom collaborates with a large number of businesses all over Denmark every year, but it is the driving force behind student partnerships with a special focus on small and medium-sized businesses.
