About the DoE

University of Luxembourg’s Department of Engineering

Civil, Environmental, Mechanical, Electrical, Engineering, and Computational Sciences. We explore the full scope of contemporary engineering. Our dynamic interdisciplinary teams work together and teach in seven research areas, focusing on sustainability and digital solutions.
Extensive collaborations with industry and public administrations help researchers and studentscultivate their skills and networks.

    Engineering in Luxembourg, engineers for Luxembourg

    Most research at the DoE is crafted to enhance Luxembourg’s competitiveness, in line with our 100-year history.

    Sharing the same ethos, our courses produce well-trained engineers from the bachelor’s to the PhD level.

    Beyond the traditional engineering disciplines, our teams and teaching programmes explore emerging contemporary issues. We cover sustainable construction, products and materials, energy, clean water, reducing CO2 emissions, optimising transport, digital modelling, etc. These topics are shared with the general public during outreach events.

    By tackling the specific needs of industry and public administrations, we forge solid and lasting collaborations. As a result, we have a strong track record of workplace insertion for our graduates, from the bachelor’s up to the PhD level.

    Our small teams, accessibility, openness to discussion, and friendly atmosphere make the DoE a stimulating international environment where world-leading research happens. The department has registered patents, has created spin-offs, and regularly publishes open-access software. Cutting-edge laboratory test facilities are available on-site and supported by an experienced technical support team.
