Career prospects

A Master’s degree in Materials, energy and nanotechnology will provide you with broad theoretical and practical skills.

After you have completed the programme you will be able to plan and carry out larger projects in a logical and efficient way. You will also learn how to report and present your research results.

With this background, you will typically go out into

  • private or public sector as an engineer,
  • operation leader or
  • researcher.

Alternatively you will be able to work in research and development at institutions such as

Others will find work in public administration, for example in

The academic environments linked to the programme also collaborate with the Centre of Material Science and Nanotechnology (SMN), which works closely with industry and companies such as

The involved research groups have also resulted in smaller companies. Work opportunities are therefore varied and good.

Our research environment is closely linked to industry and research institutions and we make sure we relay information about our students to these places. This way we can actively help students start their career once they’ve completed the programme.

A Master’s degree also qualifies for further PhD studies.

The academic environment works with large research programmes such as FUNMAT , NANOMAT and several EU projects. There are therefore great opportunities to pursue a career as a researcher of material, energy and nanotechnology.

A PhD will give a better foundation for research work in private companies, research institutes and at universities.
