What can I do with an MSc in Computer Science and Engineering

Computer Science and Engineering graduates from DTU are particularly attractive to both Danish and international companies and organizations.

Typical fields of work/career opportunities

Our graduates are highly qualified engineers capable of developing and producing complex IT systems with integrated hardware and/or software components based on theoretically and technologically well-founded methods, tools, and techniques.

Therefore, Computer Science and Engineering graduates typically find jobs in a wide range of Danish and international companies involved in IT, electronics, and communication.

Pursue a PhD

Once you have an MSc in Engineering, you might get the opportunity to continue your studies and apply for admission to the three-year PhD programme, which at DTU is a research-based programme ranking among the best in the world. You can do either a regular PhD or an industrial PhD, the latter with concurrent employment in a company.

As a PhD student, you will be part of a research group and have to carry out an independent scientific project.
