The meaningful conversation about careers, future dreams, relevant challenges, and DDINF competencies


Career Space is a career event for students in Digital Design and Information Studies. Companies, students, and researchers come together for an afternoon at Katrinebjerg to discuss competencies, professional knowledge, job opportunities, internships, thesis collaborations, and career paths.

The day includes a TWO-minutes-SPACE session where the program and participating companies are introduced. Afterward, the space is open, allowing students to engage with companies on an equal footing. The event promotes collaboration between students and the business community, which can lead to opportunities for part-time jobs, internships, or thesis collaborations.

Furthermore, students can receive guidance from Student Counseling and Arts Career during the event.

TALKS 2023

Here you can listen to the three TALKS that were held at Career Space 2023. The students had the opportunity to hear the companies' perspectives on academically relevant topics, where representatives from the companies, along with university researchers, engaged in professional discussions on a relevant subject.

The talks introduced a fresh format that aimed to highlight the academic challenges faced by companies, where students could provide input and experience the relevance of their skills in finding solutions. The objective was to inspire collaborations, whether in exam assignments or future career opportunities.
