There has been no lack of job offers for our graduates, and most of them are now working within industry as trainees, in project teams, or in staff positions related to the development of systems for project selection, evaluation and/or management. Others are working as consultants, and some have continued into PhD programmes.

The number of students in the degree programme is small, and this encourages more discussion and dialogue between faculty and students. Also, the programme organizes excursions, visits to companies, and guest lectures in the field of project management, in which the students are encouraged to participate.

The students in Project Management have their own reading rooms. They also organize social gatherings. The students at NTNU are very active and have several student societies to cover all sorts of events. Trondheim, and its location, is also great for students who like sports and outdoor activities.
