Master's degree programme

Simulation and Visualization

– Job prospects


Simulation and visualization are used in many different contexts, and the application areas are experiencing rapid growth.

Job opportunities are dependent on your background and your specialization within the Master's program in Simulation and Visualization. The program is relevant for jobs in all businesses and public organizations using simulation, which can / should use simulation, or that develop simulation methods or simulators. The study forms the basis for further PhD studies at NTNU.
