About us

About us

IT and mathematics are the most important technologies in the society of the future.

DTU Compute is Denmark's largest environment for mathematics and computer science. DTU Compute's management consists of acting department director and deputy director Jan Madsen, and 10 research section leaders. The department consists of 10 research sections, several centres and a management secretariat. In our brochure you can get a peep into our world.

DTU Compute embraces both the deep theory and the practical applications. It enables us to pass on new ideas to innovative products for the benefit of business and public institutions.

We take problems and challenges from other disciplines and lift them into a virtual world where we can make models, calculations and simulations. The results of this work we can lead back to the real world and thus solve a wide range of problems.

All engineering students must go through our department as part of their education at DTU. At the same time, we train many engineers who become specialists in our specific areas. Together with our students, we create knowledge and innovation so that we can develop the society of the future.
