For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted—the father of electromagnetism—who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.
Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s scientific advice.
At DTU Department of Environmental Engineering, the section Urban Water Systems encompasses research groups with the joint aim to manage the urban water cycle with respect to its quantity and quality. It studies how systems and technologies interact throughout the urban water cycle from raw water, to potable water, to wastewater, to storm water. Both computational and experimental studies are conducted, and often in collaboration with other research institutes, stake holders, or end users. The ultimate goal is to conduct enabling research that supports the technical solutions for a sustainable management of the urban water cycle.
