Shift Careers

Your career after IE 💫

One of the key pillars of Shift is to help you with your future career. Industrial Ecology is a very diverse study. You might have the impression sometimes that you learn a little about everything, but never become an expert at one topic.

That’s where the Shift Career Committee comes in! We connect you with the broader field of Industrial Ecologists and related careers, and empower you in your path towards landing a fulfilling yet meaningful job!

IE Career Database 💾

Generations of IE students compiled a list of almost 200 companies which are IE related. So not only the big companies we all know, but especially smaller consultancy firms, organisations and more, that might be looking for you! 

Currently this list is under construction and the Career Committee is working hard on making a more comprehensive that makes it easier for you to find your place after the master. We hope to publish it by the beginning of 2024!

And if you did become an intern or employee, we want to invite you to share your experiences below!
