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.
