SDE College is the result of a merger
SDE College was founded in 2008 as the result of a merger between Odense Technical College (Odense Tekniske Skole) and Vejle Technical College (Vejle Tekniske Skole). The historical roots of the two colleges date back as far as 1844 and 1855, respectively.
Today, SDE College covers a large part of the Region of Southern Denmark, and we have spread our activities so that we now operate from a total of 12 locations in Jutland and on the island of Funen.
Besides being part of international networks and strategic projects, SDE College also offers our students to go abroad through two different mobility programmes:
Erasmus+ is an EU-funded programme, which gives us the opportunity of sending our students to another country in Europe for practical work training for 2 to 8 weeks. We cooperate closely with our partner organisations within our European network in finding a placement for them. The students receive a scholarship to ensure that they all have the same possibilities.
PIU is an acronym for “Praktik I Udlandet” (Practical Work Training Abroad). This Danish system enables our students to find practical work training (apprenticeship) abroad, as a part of his/her Danish education. With PIU our students can find a practical work training also beyond Europe and for a longer period of time.
