Career paths

Newly graduated engineers usually start their careers in predominantly technical jobs in areas such as design and development, operation and maintenance of power generation and energy conversion systems, quality control, system integration, logistical and technical-commercial positions, and technical advice (consulting). As their careers progress, many engineers move into management positions while others head up consultant engineering firms and research centres.

The MSc in Engineering: Energy prepares you for a career in a technical-industrial setting. You will gain extensive knowledge of energy technologies, but will also have insight into global environmental issues, sustainability, and economic aspects. This broad Program prepares you for jobs that are technical / technological, but also for jobs related to policy and management.

The Program has national and international outflow possibilities to the research, policy, industrial, and service sectors, as long as energy plays a key role - a role that, in any case, is becoming more important by the day.
