NTNU is a good university with a good reputation, but I haven’t as heard much about the school in Ålesund. My father is a navel architect from NTNU, and although that is a long time ago, he had a lot of job offers to choose from after graduation. I don’t think the situation is any worse today.

Question by €l€ctroroll: What are the most wanted engineering fields in Norway?
I suppose petroleum engineers or related fields, no? And also, which country pays better for engineering, Norway, United kingdom, Italy or Sweden?

I’m not sure about Italy, but out of the others, it’s either Norway or the UK. I think for an engineer of average experience, Norway pays better if you are willing to do an offshore job. I used to work at a refinery here and met many UK engineers in Norway for the Norwegian salary. The taxes in Norway are also higher though.

A quick search of the NAV job bank shows many advertisements for civil, mechanical, electrical and petroleum engineers. Anything that’s useful for the oil business or industry/building is useful in Norway.

  1. In Norway it’s oil and gas, though there is also marine and specialised electronics in high demand.

    The rates of pay have to be taken with what it costs to live. In the EU and Norway there isn’t that much difference. I’m an experienced engineer, moved to Norway from the UK and didn’t see a big change in my income after tax and expenses, it was all much of a muchness. What is different is the cost of big ticket items like cars as they are twice what I would have paid in the UK and so you need to get a lone, etc to be able to finance the same car you could buy outright in the UK.
