Full Degree Programme

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMES

The Danish Government has decided to reduce the number of English-language programmes in Denmark. As a consequence, all international programmes at UCL University College will be phased out from 2022. We are not allowed to admit new students to the international programmes from 2022 and onwards.

You can still apply to any of our international programmes in 2021, and all current and new students will be able to complete their programmes. However, you will not be able to apply for e.g. a top-up programme after 2021.

 

If you wish to advance your qualifications in your area of profession, you should take a BA in product development and integrative technology

After finishing your academy profession degree, you can proceed directly with a Top-Up Bachelor’ degree. A Top-Up Bachelor in Product Development and Integrative Technology is a good opportunity to further develop your skills within your area of profession, and also to experience interdisciplinary work across other fields of profession. Through this interdisciplinarity, you will achieve a role as an integrator, which enables you to handle tasks that cut across different fields of profession.

Upon graduation, you will qualify for jobs in a great variety of companies, ranging from consultancy companies to large industrial enterprises.

 

The programme covers three professional fields:

  • IT and electronics for IT and electronics engineers.
  • Installation and automation for installation contractors, automation engineers, and energy technologists.
  • Development of products and productions for production engineers.

International profile

As a student at UCL University College, it is possible to create an international profile during your studies. Depending on your chosen study programme, you can complete short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.

The knowledge and insights that come from international experiences, as you encounter foreign cultures, can be useful for more than personal enrichment. Such insights may also make you highly attractive to the Danish and international job markets.

Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will grow both professionally and personally, and you have a great opportunity to make new friends and a expand your network abroad.

Practical experience

One of the things that characterise the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will receive an education that emphasises practical experience. Amongst other things, you will work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. The most practically-oriented part of the study is the internship, which is an integrated part of all study programmes at UCL.

The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory in the 'real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test, what exactly you want to do with your degree once graduated. 

When the time comes for you to find your first job as a graduate, you will because of a strong internship not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience of how it is to work in your specific field of interest.

 

After finishing the education, you can get a job in a wide variety of companies ranging from consultancy companies to large industrial enterprises.

The job opportunities lie mainly in the development, construction, and completion of products and technical systems/solutions. This also includes handling managerial tasks within development and integration tasks.

The job functions you will be able to handle depend on your qualifying education since this is what we build and expand on.
