News: You have the opportunity of a six-month job guarantee when you study at Aalborg University in Esbjerg

With a Master of Science in Technology in Risk and Safety Management, you have various job opportunities. You can for instance work as a risk analyst, a work environment coordinator, or as a project manager in sectors such as wind, oil and gas, structural and civil engineering, transportation or the public sector.

Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the “real world”.

You will obtain competences that enable you to identify the risks connected to a company’s operations, to analyse risks, and to make suggestions for reducing or avoiding risk in accordance with both the legislation and relevant standards within the area.

Furthermore, in connection with operations, you will be able to set up possible crisis scenarios and work out plans for coping with such situations. Moreover, you will be able to work with preparation and implementation of procedures for managing health, safety and quality (HSEQ) in risky operations.

With a degree in Risk and Safety Management, you will become part of a field which will be marked by growth and development in the future. The possibilities of making a career in either Denmark or overseas are therefore great.
