We love railways.


As a (graduate) intern at the Rail department of Iv, you will work on the most prominent and challenging projects. The projects vary from station projects and upper building renovations to the maintenance of civil engineering works and new construction of rail-related structures such as tunnels, bridges and viaducts. An example is the railway expansion between Schiphol and Lelystad.


As an intern, you will gain experience with various activities such as performing recordings, drafting implementation designs, drawing up contracts and preparing cost estimates. Consulting and actively aligning input with the contractor is thereby of great importance. You will also be involved in client contact to help you familiarize yourself with all facets of the profession. A graduate internship at the Rail department is also possible. You can determine a suitable assignment together with Sector Head Joey Kortlever. Following graduation, there is the possibility to start work as a junior work planner immediately. An attractive graduate internship with a job guarantee: what more could you want?


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 (HBO) Civil Engineering or Mechanical Engineering student interested in the rail sector. You must have good communication skills (both spoken and written), be proactive, and have an excellent command of the Dutch language. 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 are eager to provide input into how we, as a company, can participate herein. This internship will offer you the opportunity to develop your talents broadly.

What do we have to offer you?

A challenging (graduate) 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.
