Solar cell parks at Better Energy

I help create solar systems in the company Better Energy. I feel lucky, because I get to work with green transition in my job - and I get to work with colleagues with different skills, who are all passionate about what they do.

Anne Sofie, graduate

From suit to rubber boots

I work in the company Landinspektørkontoret. I love being employed in a small business because few days are the same. In a small company, there is great responsibility and a wide variety of tasks. I am involved when we buy properties, when properties in the city need to be optimized or when utility companies need to do wiring work. I also take part in networking events and conferences, and I visit customers.

Jonas, graduate

District plans for the cities and facilities of the future

I make district plans in the company Geopartner. I make things come together in a higher unity, taking into account the legislation in the area, the customers' wishes and our environment.
The district plans deal with everything from urban and property development to open field projects, standard houses and grocery stores.
