A head-start on professional life

Read how junior engineer Mikkel Mohr Madsen transitioned from university to career life by writing his master’s thesis for NNE.

How did you join NNE?

I got started at NNE by writing my master’s thesis here. I was studying biotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), and had been part of a few events and a small project before. So when it became time to get started on my thesis, I got in touch with one of my contacts and they suggested a topic within biocontainment and risk analysis.

Writing my thesis here was a great transition to working on real-life projects. I liked knowing that something I’d spent so much time on was actually put to use. It also helped me to start building my own network in the organisation – it taught me how easy it is to get in touch with colleagues for assistance. Everyone I talked to during the process was very helpful and friendly, and when I finished my thesis and started working as a junior engineer, it was really useful to have some connections in the company to reach out to.

Where would you like your career to go?

As a young engineer, I’m not sure if I’d like to become a consultant, a specialist or a project manager. My goal is just to learn as much as possible and find out what I like best. I chose NNE because I could sense how much knowledge there was in the organisation, and I knew that would make it a great place to develop. I hadn’t realised just how much I’d learned until we had a new colleague join us and I was able to offer him a lot of tips. It really hit me then how much I had developed.

When I explain to old classmates what I’m doing now, everyone is amazed to hear about the projects I get to work on.
