The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) was established in 1999 and is Denmark’s leading university focusing on IT research and education. We deliver state-of-the-art teaching and research within computer science, business IT and digital design. 

Our ambition is to create and share knowledge that is profound and leads to ground-breaking information technology and services for the benefit of humanity. 

The university collaborates closely with industry, the public sector and international researchers and is characterized by a strong entrepreneurial spirit among students as well as researchers.  

ITU’s modern campus in central Copenhagen is designed by the world-renowned Danish architect Henning Larsen. 

ITU in numbers:

• 2,300 students

• 330 staff members (full-time equivalent)


Students processing ITU's room booking and wifi access point data as part of a course project (October 2018)

In October 2018, MSc students from the Big Data Management course (part of the MSc programmes in Digital Innovation & Management and Software Development (Design)) have been given access to data relating to activities taking place in the ITU building: room booking data (as stored in Time Edit) and pseudonymized (i.e. MAC addresses of connecting devices are hashed) wifi access point data. Both data sets cover activities on ITU premises from 2 October till 2 November and includes only regular personal data.

Analyzing this data is part of one of the course projects ("project 2"), in which students learn about technical, legal, ethical and commercial aspects of applications using big data sets in a real-life setting. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(e) GDPR: education (public interest).

The data are processed in compliance with the GDPR and will be deleted within 3 months after the end of the course (i.e. 30 April 2019). If you have any questions, concerns or complaints, please contact the course administrator (Katja de Vries, kavr@itu.dk) and/or the Data Protection Officer at ITU (Rasmus Balle, dpo@itu.dk).
