Career prospects

There is a close connection between Delft University of Technology and the Industry. During your study you will get the opportunity to get in contact with companies and build a network. Besides internships and thesis projects at companies you can also get in contact with companies via the EEMCS recruitment days or the technical career fair of TU Delft. Mathematical experts are highly desired for their ability to predict and optimise properties of technical or physical systems that have yet to be realised, using computational and mathematical tools.

Applied mathematicians are in particular demand as consultants, scientific software developers, project managers or researchers in large industries and research institutes, including DeltaresNational Aerospace Laboratory (NLR), TNO ,the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI). In addition, many opportunities exist in the research departments of large industrial companies (e.g. PhilipsShellAKZO-Nobel and KPN). Advances in mathematical finance have created a demand for applied mathematicians in such financial institutions as ABN Amro, as well as in governmental organisations like Rijkswaterstaat and CBS. Furthermore, excellent students can choose to pursue a PhD degree at a university.
