A passion for sustainable production that pays off

  • This Programme is offered in Sønderborg
  • This Programme is taught in English

Jane Kaad Lykke Gregersen, who has just started her master studies in Engineering, Innovation and Business, has her eye on a dream career:

‘I would like to work with sustainability in what we call ‘cradle to cradle’. The idea is only to be eco-friendly if you can make money at the same time – i.e. to ‘think green’ must be worth it financially as well. I have written a report about the subject which I hope to be able to dig deeper into, because I like the holistic approach’, she says.

Theory applied in real life
Jane chose to study Engineering, Innovation and Business, because she likes its combination of engineering skills and business aspects – and to use her knowledge to solve concrete challenges:

‘Each semester we have a project where we apply the theory we have learned. E.g. on our fifth semester we had a course called Expert in Teams where we worked together in a large interdisciplinary group with each of us being an expert in our field.’

‘We did our project for Søby Shipyard. They could not sand-blast their ships in windy weather and that made them uncompetitive. We solved the problem by developing a robot that uses induction instead of sand to remove the paint’, says Jane and continues:

‘It was a really exciting project where we worked with real life problems. At the same time, the interdisciplinary work taught us a lot about our own competences as well as the competences of the others.’
