After your graduation

Upon graduation you will receive a Master of Science (MSc) degree, together with the International Diploma Supplement (IDS) in English. What opportunities do these bring?

Career prospects

By completing Next Level Engineering Master programme, you will have grown into a pro-active technical  professional with the skills needed to design and optimise engineering processes and products. You will be an asset to any employer in the field.

You link and switch easily between different (technical) fields of expertise, advise clients, use existing knowledge and apply it in uncertain and complex situations. Hence, you are able to think outside the box. A possible project could be the implementation of discarding the natural gas grid for residential houses in (part of) a city.

You work in a multidisciplinary team, developing and promoting the use of new technologies, for instance in health care. You function as a change agent, stimulate and motivate colleagues, can achieve results in uncertain and/or complex situations.

Postgraduate studies

This applied Master prepares you for a more complex working environment than your Bachelor programme did. If you want to continue to study and perform (PhD) research after completing this programme, we would advise you to choose a more theoretical Master programme. Even though a Master of Science gives you the possibility to apply for a PhD project at a university or other research institute, the applied nature of the Next Level Engineering Master is not the best preparation for such a project. In that case, a theoretical Master would be a logical next step.
