After your studies

It is important for research to be carried out in contact with industry, administrative bodies and within an international network of contacts. We encourage all of you that obtain employment outside NTNU to maintain your own personal contacts with the university.

A significant number of qualified doctoral students take their knowledge and results with them to established industries or to establish new companies themselves. Doctoral programmes with 3-4 years scholarship are one of the best financial arrangements for young people who want to develop their own ideas into companies with a solid scientific basis.

NTNU Technology Transfer may help you to go commercial with your ideas and research.
