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. As the Automotive Management degree is a combination of commercial and technical subjects the students are at the autotechnique center every week.
Dania offers you passionate teachers, whom you always can approach for a chat or help, whether it regards your studies or it is of a more personal matter.
At first your studies can seem overwhelming and lots will be different from your high school studies. There will be many new things to relate to and many new people, both teachers and fellow students. Here you will learn to structure and prioritize your time, and as it is a full-time education we expect you to work thoroughly with each subject.
The fun bit...
"Fredagsbar" is the Danish term for Friday afternoon party time, organised by students for students.
DSR (The Student Council) organises also parties, events and have influence on the student life at Dania Viborg. The council members are all students and they are the "voice" of the students.
Parties are normally held around Christmas time and before the summer break, when we need to enjoy ourselves after a hard-working semester. Moreover Dania organises a student trip at the beginning of your first semester.
What we expect of you..
The first real examinations are at the end of the 2nd semester, but we do construct some trial exams so the students know what to expect later on. There are also exams at the end of 3rd and 4th semesters.
During your AP Degree you must complete four projects, and the 4th project is your final one. This is often based on a case from your internship company and this project you must defend at an oral examination. Hereafter you can title yourself Automotive Technologist AP.
At the Automotive Management degree we mainly use electronic versions of technical books as well as hand-outs etc.
Every AP degree has its own curriculum, that explains in details the study programme, compulsory and optional subjects, examinations etc. If you wish to know more about the Automotive Management programme please click here!
