Do you want to help shape the future of energy? ​

Your master thesis might change the way
our industry develops! ​

We have several topics for master thesis writing within Equinor, and we are interested in your suggestions and views. Writing a master thesis in collaboration with us gives you the opportunity to help us solve some of the challenges our industry is currently facing. Your perspectives and inputs are important to us.

Some of the master thesis topics will be written in collaboration with relevant departments at your university, and some will require you to work from our Equinor office.

You can learn more about some of the master thesis we offer at our stand during UKA. 

Digital technologies and facilities in Equinor focus on improved safety, increased value creation, reduced carbon footprint and enabling new business models. The full potential of data is yet to be unlocked using advanced technology such as cloud computing, microservice architectures, machine learning, artificial intelligence. ​
