The job market for candidates with expertise in geosciences is very good in Norway and abroad. There are numerous possibilities related for example to hydroelectricity, the oil industry, weather forecast or the mining industry. You will have the possibility to make your master thesis in cooperation with a private company or a research institute; a good opportunity to get insight into the job market.
The Master programme has close cooperations with a range of external institutions and private companies, like the Norwegian Water Directorate, The Norwegian Geological Survey, the Meteorological Institute, the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, The Norwegian Polar Institute, Research institutions on Svalbard (UNIS), Jordforsk, CICERO, NIJOS, NORSAR, NIVA, StatoilHydro and others. Many of our former students work in these companies. The master programme also cooperates closely with Norwegian Centres of Excellence, like the International Center of Geohazard (ICG).
The master study provides the qualification to apply for our PhD programme, as well as a solid basis for becoming a secondary school teacher.
