Job prospects for graduates of the Applied Physics programme are very good. Graduates of the programme find work in both the private and public sectors, in such fields as research and development, consultancy, management and education. Some also choose to pursue doctoral studies at TU Delft or other leading universities.
In recent years, some 90% of all applied physics graduates have found work within three months (source: Nationale Alumni Enquête 2015). Companies which have employed recent graduates include Total, Shell, BP, Philips, Corus, ASML, Philips, TNO, McKinsey, BCG, Bain and Company, Optiver and Price Waterhouse Coopers.
