Simulation and Visualization

– Job prospects


Simulation and visualization are being introduced in more and more areas of society, and the demand for these skills is therefore increasing. Students gain an interdisciplinary education that enables them to work in a wide variety of areas.

Simulation and visualization have many areas of application and are used in engineering professions, training, analyses, and planning projects, for example.

Job opportunities depend on your background as well as your specialization in the master’s degree programme in simulation and visualization. The programme is relevant for jobs in all businesses and public-sector organizations that use simulation, that can/should use simulation, or that develop simulation methods or simulators. The programme forms the basis for further PhD studies at NTNU.


Simulation and visualization in the workplace:

  • A surgeon practising an operation in a simulator
  • Swarm intelligence methods for search and rescue
  • Simulation and visualization of automation in a factory
  • Use of artificial intelligence to predict when machine components must be replaced
  • Visualization and simulation of subsea technology
  • Machine learning to create revolutionary software for chess
  • Use of artificial intelligence in gaming technology
  • Virtual prototyping of ship components
  • Developing concepts for smart cities

I looked at the study program Simulation and visualization as forward-looking and something that could open up many opportunities, says Magnus - who went straight to work as a development engineer as a finished student.
