Academic requirements

If you're from one of these Danish study programmes, you automatically fulfill the entry requirements:

  • IT, Communication and New Media (AAU)
  • Elektronik og IT (AAU)
  • Internetteknologier og computersystemer (AAU)
  • Softwareteknologi (DTU) (BSc or BEng)
  • Netværksteknologi og IT (DTU) (BSc)
  • IT-Elektronik (DTU) (BEng)
  • IT og økonomi (DTU) (BEng)

Students with other Bachelor's degrees may be admitted – subject to individual evaluation by the Study Board of Electronics and IT – if they are deemed to have comparable educational prerequisites within technical IT. Admission to this engineering programme generally requires solid competencies within object-oriented programming, distributed systems and network architectures.

If your Bachelor's degree is not on the list above, please contact Henning Olesen, programme coordinator for ICTE to get his assessment of your academic qualifications.


The admission to Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship is restricted. This means that not all applicants who apply on time and fulfil the admission requirements are assured of a student place on the programme. The expected number of student places is 60.

Screening of applications is based on the following criteria in order of priority:

  • Grades obtained on completed semesters of the undergraduate programme at the time of assessment. It’s weighed positively if the relevant bachelor program is completed within standard time.
  • The given motivation for studying and the knowledge of  Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship. A portfolio of previous work may be enclosed
  • Relevant, verifiable extra-curricular activities, e.g. work experience within programming, communication technologies, innovation, business and service development.

International atmosphere

At ICTE, we have people from all over the world. We teach in English and we have an international atmosphere with both researchers/teachers and students coming from all over the world. We have and have had students from more than 20 different countries.

Study form

The programme is based on a high degree of group work - we practice Problem-Based Learning. You'll have lectures, seminars, individual work and project work in groups. Your work will be project-based.

All courses are taught in English.


Group work is an essential element at Aalborg University. Each semester, you work in a group on a large project . This group project counts for 15 ECTS which is half of your study activity on a semester, so it is important that you like to work in groups and see yourself as team player.

It can be challenging to work in groups, but it is also this skill that makes AAU candidates highly attractive on the labour market.

Semester Project Seminars


Twice each semester, ICTE students present their on-going semester group project to the other ICTE students. Another group of ICTE students then act as 'opponents' to give feedback, provide suggestions and develop the project idea.
