Technology College Aalborg offers a wide range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) programmes within the field of Youth Education, leading to nationally approved qualifications & specialisations, which are recognised internationally as well. In addition to this, we deliver a large and versatile selection of continuous and in-service training for employees in the construction industry based on a flexible and market demand driven approach.
At Technology College Aalborg, we currently employ 40 vocational teachers and have at our disposal top modern tuition facilities. Our training workshops and Open Learning Centres are fitted with new high tech equipment and ICT to resemble the realities of the industry, and to create an environment, which is conducive to the learning processes of our young students and adult course participants.
Academy of Automation opened
Technology College Aalborg is already certified as a Cisco knowledge centre, and in April 2011 opened an Academy of Automation, which will specialise in gathering and disseminating information about computer based automation and control of power, heating, AC and ventilation systems in buildings. This new development could also in the future encompass utilisation of new robot technology in connection with automation.
A part of Tech College Aalborg
Technology College Aalborg is a part of Tech College Aalborg – previously known as Aalborg Technical College. Founded more than 200 years ago, Tech College Aalborg is one of the largest VET institutions in Denmark. In our new organisational set-up, Tech College Aalborg provides overall management and administration, and delivers cross-cutting service functions to the group of trade related, professional colleges like Technology College Aalborg.
The global challenge
Danish VET Colleges have a long tradition of being engaged in international cooperation projects. The idea is to open the minds of both teachers, course participants and students to the world, and to ensure that we equip our graduates with the international competencies which are needed in the globalised labour market.
As an example, Technology College Aalborg is now cooperating with international partner colleges in Poland, Holland and Germany within the framework of the Leonardo da Vinci programme - initially to provide opportunities for mutual exchange of VET students including short-term work practise in foreign companies.
Additionally, a Danish support scheme, ‘Work Placement Abroad’ (in Danish “PIU”), makes it possible for Danish VET students to do all – or part of – the company based training included in their chosen VET Programme abroad. Our International Coordinator at Technology College Aalborg is currently promoting the use of this unique opportunity further among our students, and he is continuously working to engage the college further in other types of international cooperation projects.
