During my graduation period I have learned a lot about the dredging industry, especially about backhoe dredgers. I have experienced that Van Oord executes enormous projects with large technical challenges and offers a varied work environment. For me, this period was a fun and educational time. For this reason, I have decided to start with the trainee program in September 2016.
