Technical University of Denmark (DTU) was established in 1829 as College of Advanced Technology, Denmark which had its first M.Sc program in Engineering at a high academic level. The college changed its name to Danish Technical College in 1933 and finally became the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 1994. DTU has always had a strong theoretical grounding. The objective was to educate young men to work in industry, but in the beginning DTU was not able to teach practice, so the college mainly educated technical teachers.
DTU has international educational exchange programs with over 200 universities around the globe and enjoys close research collaborations with its partners in addition to building research and educational programs in Nordic Five Tech, the Euro Tech Universities - Excellence in Science and Technology, as well as with Rensselaer in the U.S., Nanyang in Singapore and KAIST in South Korea.
