We make a point of ensuring that our educations are practice-oriented, which is why teaching takes place in close collaboration with relevant companies and municipalities. A good professional network will therefore be an advantage.

Absalon’s students must feel their education from day one. When they walk through the door, they must feel the profession they are entering. They need to feel a special educational culture where the community and collaboration with teachers and other students is strong, and finally, they need to feel a unified organization that puts students first and has a strong and clear educational professionalism.

In addition, we expect you to have a relevant higher education, e.g. engineering, chemistry or similar.

Your colleagues:

The engineering education is organizationally located in Kalundborg in the Centre for Engineering and Science (CES), which was established in 2017. We are therefore still in the process of adapting the program, creating our culture and traditions among both employees and students.

You will be part of a center with a head of center, four heads of education, and so far 35 employees. You will be part of the biotech team that values team spirit and professionalism. The team consists of 12 assistant and associate professors, a laboratory technician and a laboratory trainee.
