It is accessible 24-7 for highly motivated students, primarily from engineering and computer science programs, guided and inspired by the best researchers and domain experts from Aarhus University and our industry partners from leading tech companies and startups. A core purpose of the lab is also to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations on research and development projects with other AU departments and external organizations.
 
Aside from ongoing projects in the lab, we are hosting a range of events such as tech talks, workshops, hackathons and pitch nights to inspire, facilitate learning and foster networks with students, academics and industry partners.
 
We are looking for a person who:

  • Has a passion for technology and enjoys learning about and exploring new technologies

  • Is organised, self-driven, enjoy responsibility, and can demonstrate leadership in projects and activities
