Working on various topics within hydraulic engineering.


Do you want to be involved in assessing structures, performing geotechnical, structural and hydraulic calculations and contributing your input to smart innovations? As an intern within the hydraulic engineering department of Iv, you will work on the most prominent and complex projects in the Netherlands, such as the Panama Canal lock gates, a mega deep-sea quay at Maasvlakte 2 or complex dyke reinforcement projects. In addition, you will work with specialists from other disciplines to produce a perfectly integral design. Your work will concern hydraulic structures and important topics such as flood risk management and water systems.

Iv provides tailor-made and innovative designs and advice for constructing and maintaining sustainable infrastructure. You may already be familiar with our involvement in the new IJMuiden sea lock, the Zandhazen Bridge or the design of the Panama Canal lock gates. By developing and applying the latest technologies, we offer ready-made and sustainable solutions for not only today's societal challenges but also those of tomorrow! We provide integral advice for steel and concrete civil engineering works, hydraulic engineering, spatial planning, upkeep, traffic and infrastructure installations and railways. We also offer specialist services in spatial measurement and monitoring structures, RAMS and risk management, asset management, systems engineering, contract management, project management, and supervision.

What do we expect from you?

We are looking for an enthusiastic higher vocational/university level (HBO) Civil Engineering student specialising in Hydraulic Engineering or Geo-Engineering who loves technical challenges. A creative, critical thinker who thinks outside the box. After all, this is how the best solutions are realised! We consider your enterprising spirit and curiosity about new things equally important as your technical knowledge and creativity. You keep yourself up to date with the latest developments and know how to make perfect use of the freedom you receive from us.

What do we have to offer you?

A challenging internship at the most diverse engineering company in the Netherlands! We will ensure you get the most out of your graduate internship assignment. You will work on the most incredible one-of-a-kind projects and receive much personal responsibility. This is how we challenge you to push the limits. Through the guidance provided by our most innovative engineers, who will gladly teach you the tricks of the trade, we will help you develop your talents. Oh yes, also important, we offer an attractive internship allowance of €600 for HBO students.
