Experience before YEP

During my time at the university of Arnhem and Nijmegen I had the opportunity to get practical work experience in The Netherlands and abroad. These internships were all in a multidisciplinary work environment where different work fields came together. I worked on the following projects:

  • Thesis on the realization of a work island in the Caspian Sea for Witteveen+Bos. The main focus was making sure that the design of the island didn’t conflict with the rules and regulations concerning the maximum amount of particles per liter of water
  • Internship at Ballast Nedam International in Ghana, focusing on the realization of water treatment plants and the corresponding pipelines
  • Internship at Royal Haskoning focusing on the design of booster- and pump stations in 2D and 3D
  • Internship at Heijmans N.V. working on the preparation of different infrastructural projects
