Job prospects

A MSc in Materials Science and Engineering will give you a broad range of job opportunities both in Norway and internationally. Because 40% of the Norwegian industry is material based, typical candidates often work in metallurgical and chemical industries like Elkem, Hydro, Equinor, Sintef and Aker Solutions. These large companies also have international operations.

It is possible to get to know potential employers through many different career days like Materialdagen (https://materialdagen.no/), during the studies. Here companies come to present their work and meet with the students. It is also possible to write project or master thesis in direct cooperation with businesses.
