Erasmus Charter

Our official Erasmus charter awarded under the Erasmus+ programme by the European Commssion: Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020

Erasmus Policy Statement
Our vision is to educate the international, technical leaders of the future. That means we must ensure that our graduates are able to take on relevant employment in a globalized labour market and can take on assignments in cooperation with colleagues and partners from abroad. Having this as a goal means that internationalization is an important part of our activities and is included in our Strategy 2015 and our Development contract with the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education.

Four years ago our first students went abroad to study. We made this possible by establishing partnerships with foreign educational institutions and at the same time creating a curriculum that makes it possible to accredit these studies. Meanwhile, due to guidance of the students and a growing network of international companies, a rapidly increasing number of our students also choose to do traineeships abroad.

In autumn 2013, we take the next step in our internationalization efforts. We will offer an international elective with the participation of both international and Danish students. In doing so, we will create an international environment at our school and make it possible for all students – also the ones that for one reason or another do not have the opportunity to study abroad – to have an international experience.

Our vision in the Development contract 2013-2014 with the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education and our Strategy 2015:

Our goal for 2013 is that we will do a teacher exchange with one educational institution abroad, at least five foreign students will attend our international elective, we will establish a new partnership with a European educational institution and at least 25 % of our students will undertake a traineeship or study abroad for a shorter or longer period.

Our goal for 2014 is that we will do a teacher exchange with one educational institution abroad, 10 – 15 international students will attend our international elective, we will establish a new partnership with a European educational institution and that at least 50 % of our students will undertake a traineeship or study abroad for a shorter or longer period.

Our goal for 2015 is that we will do a teacher exchange with one educational institution abroad, at least 15 international students will attend our international elective, we will establish a new partnership with a European educational institution and that at least 75 % of our students will undertake a traineeship or study abroad for a shorter or longer period.

Our international partner institutions are higher education institutions that offer courses relevant to our students – courses in the field of technical and natural sciences, management and maritime subjects. It is important for us that the institutions we cooperate with are just as internationally minded as we are and are eager to exchange both students and lecturers. We believe that teacher exchange is an important part of internationalizing an institution; the lecturer’s influence on the students is huge – the lecturers are carriers of culture and they are in close contact with the students throughout their education.

Our students study or do traineeships in all parts of the world. We have contact with companies and organizations in third world countries and in the western part of the world in various types of industries, such as the maritime sector, production companies and the public sector. We are always interested in broadening our group of partners, with both educational institutions and businesses, and we are quite keen on getting more European partners in order to take advantage of all the possibilities within the Erasmus Programme.
