The idea of this course is to provide an overview of current challenges and research and especially ongoing research on faculty of Engineering and Science as AAU. The program will enable PhD students to understand how their specific research fits a wider frame and to learn state-of-the-art in related topics.

The plastics consumption is more than 300 mill. ton annually. This is around 10% of the oil and it contribute to landfill, ocean waste, increasing the amount of microplastics in the environment and carbon dioxide emissions. It is possible to recycle plastics fully (reuse, refurbish, recycle mechanically and chemical). To transform the current plastics, use towards recycling there are several barriers to overcome.

Important information concerning PhD courses:
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year.
We look forward to your registrations.
