Career prospects

Emerging energy systems, energy-efficient technology, smart grids, electrifying transport and the electricity market guarantee graduates of electrical engineering work now and in the future.

New experts are needed for product development, project engineering, sales and marketing, and management positions. Your job responsibilities may include, for example, the design, product development, technical sales or production management of electrotechnical equipment and its production.

There is also a growing need in the market for electrical trading engineers and electrical work managers. As private solar and wind power plants become more common, power plants are also experiencing a time of change. Thus, graduates of electrical engineering will have enough work in both industry and municipal positions.

Master's graduates in electrical engineering have gone on to become:

  • upper level management in the electricity sector
  • testing engineers
  • automation engineers
  • electricity grid designers for distribution companies
  • production development managers for electronics companies
  • managing directors of electricity companies
  • design engineers
