Program Overview

DTUFounded in 1829, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is unique among Danish universities due to its polytechnic, single faculty nature and the specified civic and social aim on its purpose in society. DTU provides education, research, scientific advice, innovation, and industrial collaboration within the technical sciences and the natural sciences and is renowned for its business-oriented approach and its focus on sustainability. DTU’s research-based educational programs are of the highest international standard.
 
The undergraduate engineering exchange program with DTU enables undergraduates from both institutions to take advantage of the unique academic and cultural opportunities offered by Dartmouth College and DTU. The program generally enrolls three students from DTU to spend the fall term at Dartmouth and a like number of Dartmouth students to spend the fall or spring semester at DTU. Spring semester exchange requires the utilization of one transfer (X) term for winter and an L term for spring.
 
DTU’s fall term runs from early September to late January, but exchange students can choose to end their fall semester in late December, thus skipping the intensive 3-week course in January. DTU’s spring term runs from early February to late June, but exchange students can choose to end their spring semester in late May, skipping the intensive 3-week course in June.
 
Upon completion of the exchange, the exchange coordinator at the host institution will forward the transcript to the Office of the Registrar, Dartmouth College. Future transcripts of exchange program grades must be obtained by the student from the exchange institution.

Academics

Faculty Advisor
Professor Benoit Cushman-Roisin (Thayer School of Engineering)

Dartmouth participants on the exchange will be undergraduate students in their third (or possibly fourth) year who will be engineering sciences majors (or modified majors) by the time they enter the exchange program.  Applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0.

Applications must be submitted by February 1 of the year before the planned exchange.

Student Life

Technical University of Denmark's main campus, DTU Lyngby Campus, is located just 15 km north of Copenhagen. The DTU Lyngby Campus covers 106 hectares of meadows and woodland. Students have access to a multitude of facilities: state-of-the-art laboratories as well as modern lecture halls, student-data bars, cafeterias, cafes, sport facilities, student associations, and clubs.

DTU will provide the appropriate counselling and other assistance to Dartmouth exchange students, assist Dartmouth exchange students in finding appropriate housing in residence halls, apartments or private homes for the period of their study at DTU, and assist them in securing such rooms to the fullest extent possible;

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
Dartmouth students pay tuition and service fees to Dartmouth; room and board fees are paid directly to DTU. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student. Because the exchange is an official program sponsored by the College, the Dartmouth student does not need to pay the transfer term fee that the College charges to students who study on outside programs during leave terms.
 
Financial Aid
Financial aid is available for official exchange programs arranged through the College. Financial aid awards are adjusted to reflect the actual cost of the exchange term. However, students will receive no more scholarship assistance than they would have received for a term at Dartmouth. Any extra costs associated with the program will be covered by additional loan assistance.
