Science and Technology is a faculty at Aarhus University. Science and Technology offers sixteen BSc degree programmes, eight BEng degree programmes (Professional Bachelor’s degrees) and twenty-eight MSc degree programmes, nine of which are MEng degree programmes. ST also offers a small number of further and continuing education programmes. Niels Chr. Nielsen is the dean of Science and Technology.

The teaching is organised in three schools: the Aarhus School of Science (ASOS) for the science degree programmes, the Aarhus University School of Engineering (ASE) for the engineering degree programmes, and the Graduate School of Science and Technology (GSST) for the PhD degree programmes.

The faculty consists of twelve departments, three schools, a major interdisciplinary centre (iNANO), a number of larger and smaller centres, and two national centres (DCA – Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture and DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy).

Science and Technology was established on 1 January 2011 by amalgamating the former Faculty of Science, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and National Environmental Research Institute of Denmark (NERI).

As of 1 January 2012, ST also merged with the Engineering College of Aarhus, which is now a school under Science and Technology responsible for study programmes and educational activities for the BEng and MEng degrees.

Science and Technology is also responsible for four of the university’s museums, with 80,000 visitors annually.
