EngTech (Engineering & Technology) is an interdisciplinary research group at the Department of Business Development and Technology (BTECH), Aarhus University, Herning.
The research of EngTech focuses on technology, technological functionalities and engineering with a view to creating new opportunities for private companies and public organisations.
The research revolves around technology as a starting point for change and technology in an application perspective. The group often works with technology in a life-cycle perspective from idea and design to production and operations.
The scientific backbone of the EngTech research group is to pursue research within engineering, technological artifacts, sociotechnical systems, information technology and mathematical modeling in order to:
The main visions of the EngTech research group are to:
The research group vision is to connect these five visions in a lab for engineering and technology where researchers and students can interact and collaborate.
The EngTech research group held its first formal meeting 1 October 2015. Prior to this, the group's members had collaborated on engineering research activities for at least five years.
The main reason for forming a formal research group was an intention to strengthen:
