Aalborg University is a young university with only 40 years of history. Since its establishment in 1974, AAU has been characterised by a problem-based and project-oriented teaching method (PBL) – also called the Aalborg Model, and by extensive collaboration with the surrounding society.


Since Aalborg University was first established in 1974, all university programmes have been based on problem based learning (PBL). Aalborg University students work in groups applying problem oriented methods in preparing projects of a high academic standard.

The PBL-based pedagogical model of the University has become both nationally and internationally recognised by universities, researchers and students as an advanced and efficient learning model. Thus, UNESCO has placed its only Danish Chair in PBL at Aalborg University.AAU will continue to develop and adapt the Aalborg PBL Model to meet the societal and educational demands and changes. 


AAU is internationally acclaimed for its excellent problem and solution oriented research, which is creating outstanding results.

Our  research is holistic; it is conducted in collaboration with business and organisational partners in our local communities, and new  insights and positions of strength are reached through the goal-oriented development of our research potentials.
