Foundation: 1829

Mission: DTU will develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society. The raison d’être behind DTU’s mission is founded on the polytechnic idea as conceived in the first half of the nineteenth century, since when it has distinguished—and continues to distinguish—all aspects of DTU’s activities and development. This development is characterized by the University continuing to interact closely with society at both national and international levels so as to generate value. This interaction leads to mutually fruitful partnerships with industry, the service sector, and the public sector which are the foundation for DTU’s value creation.

Vision: Hans Christian Ørsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
