Faculties and Departments at Aalborg University

Aalborg University encompasses five faculties, under which all research and educational activities take place. Each faculty at Aalborg University represents a main area of science and is organised into a number of departments, centres and schools, which work with specific scientific areas within the faculty’s main areas. Likewise, the boards of studies - which are responsible for the various study programmes - are also organised under each faculty. The five faculties are each headed by a dean. AAU also consists of The Danish Building Research Institute (SBi) since the fusion in 2007.
