Case 2020: TDC 

On this case, you will work with the interplay of digital network technologies and the building and protection of strong communities.

The future calls for hybrid skills. So do the three case tracks of this competition. Therefore, we urge students from all fields – technical as well as non-technical – to participate, and we encourage you to build teams that cut across disciplines and educational programs.

“At TDC, we believe strongly in attracting our future colleagues by building close relationships with them in settings of collaborative problem-solving. AAU Case Competition is exactly such a setting, and it is the perfect opportunity for us to spot the best talent by having them challenge our mindset and help us put technology to use in the best ways possible in the society that we serve.” – TDC
