Dania Campus Viborg has more than 250 students and employs approx. 20 lecturers and other staff. Our department is characterised by its involved lecturers, relaxed environment and closeness to local, national and international businesses.
Our primary focus in our study programmes is to secure that the theory we teach also is applicable in the real business world. Therefore you will find that we engage local companies and organisations in our daily lectures and project work, so that you understand how theories come to life in practice. The teaching methods are a combination of class teaching, projects, case studies, external teachers from businesses or other educational institutions, as well as excursions to local businesses. We pay great attention to bring practical experiences into our teaching.
A key part of the full-time AP degrees is that you must complete a three month internship in a business during the 4th semester. This can take place in Denmark or abroad. An internship will give you valuable practical insight and teach you to apply other working methods in solving specific work tasks. Furthermore you will gain a relevant insight into a company´s requirements and expectations. The internship may also be the basis for you final project.

Danish student at the International IT Technology AP Degree (2012-2014)
Jimmy Hansen is currently a 4th semester IT Technology student (spring 2014). Jimmy is Danish but has chosen to follow the English IT Technology AP degree at Dania Campus Viborg, because all the material is in English anyway and so is the working language also. His background is as a trained Carpenter, but he chose to make a career change and become and IT Technologist. Jimmy chose this degree because he sees it as being more hardware orientated than f.ex. the Computer Science degree.
He explains that there is homework most days and practical-based projects are part of the curriculum. He tells that most of the students often stay at the Campus after class to do the work. The advantage is that they can help each other, and lecturers and supervisors are nearby. Also the Campus offers good study facilities. There is an open workshop every week where the students can get extra technical help.
Jimmy´s 4th semester internship is taking place in a Danish company called ITXpress and he will take part in a specific concrete task where they are going to centrally distribute programmes to client tablets and laptops and that way help saving both money and time. Later on he hopes to work as an IT consultant or IT manager. Before the internship Jimmy had a meeting with the company and told them which tasks an It Technologist can do. The degree gives the opportunity to work with problem solving i.e. on larger network and administration units.
