The merger has been on the wish list of both institutions for a number of years, and it was finalised on 15 December when both rectors signed the merger documents. The Engineering College is also saying goodbye to Ove Poulsen, who has been the rector of the college for eight years.
“This has been a smooth and easy process. What we’ve done is achieve a reverse, seamless, non-merger. I call it The Happy Merger,” he says. The subjects studied at the college will be integrated into the Faculty of Science and Technology.
