Driven for a large part by the success of the (Dutch) maritime industry, job prospects for graduates are excellent. Former MT students work at shipyards, like Damen and IHC Merwede, ship-owners or at the Dutch Ministry of Defence (Royal Dutch Navy). Working for marine contractors, like SBM, Bluewater, Heerema, Boskalis, van Oord and Allseas, is also an often chosen option. MT graduates find outstanding opportunities with firms in other (maritime) fields as well, including (heavy) cargo transport and salvage firms, design and engineering companies, research institutes like MARIN and TNO, banks and classification societies. Others continue at TU Delft with a PhD research, or they pursue a PhD while working for a company in industry.
