DTU Kemi - Klaus B Møller i DR - TV-avisen
DR - TV brought on Thursday, June 22, a feature of high dropout in upper secondary education, and as a good "counter story" the statistics shows, that the drop in 'Chemistry and Technology' is very low - only 5%. This is actually the fifth-lowest of all higher educations in Denmark. Professor Klaus Braagaard Møller and Chemistry and Technology students were interviewed for a 3 minute very positive feature about the education from DTU Chemistry.
