Division of Civil and Environmental Engineering
The Division of Civil and Environmental Engineering conducts research and provides research-based education at the highest international level within its subject areas. A common denominator for the division's research is to develop tools, methods and sustainable technical solutions for the benefit of the society.
About the Division of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Case studies, model experiments and fieldwork are largely supplemented by quantitative tools for analysis and simulation of observed data. In addition, the division develops software for various purposes, e.g. simulation of traffic, design of infrastructure, analysis of data from weather radar, automated identification of (micro) plastic, as well as control of wave basins and analysis of wave data. The developed software is available under different types of license and applied by e.g. research and educational institutions at home and abroad.
The division provides the teaching in engineering study programmes at the Department of the Built Environment and in other AAU departments.
The vast majority of the division's research activities are funded externally, and we have strong national and international collaborations with research institutions, private companies and the public sector. The research results are published primarily in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals and technical reports.
The division operates several well-equipped laboratories and field stations, which are used to perform experimental studies in lab, pilot and full scale.
