Dutch Internships
Plenty of implementation and work preparation internships are available at Boskalis Nederland. We’re also looking for civil engineering students at intermediate or higher vocational education level for various projects in the disciplines roads, concrete, construction and hydraulic engineering. Think about projects like the motorway expansion between Schiphol airport, Amsterdam and Almere (SAAone) or the widening of the Wilhelmina Channel in Tilburg. The great thing about these internships is that you can be involved in multidisciplinary projects, many of them based on modern contract types. An internship within Boskalis Nederland is the perfect opportunity to get comfortable with the various aspects of your future profession.

Internships abroad
If you’re up for an adventure, you can take your internship abroad. We often have opportunities on project sites all around the globe, especially for Civil Engineering, Finance & Control and Ocean Technology students. Of course we will provide you with all the information you need and take care of necessities like the journey to and from the project site, accommodation, (reimbursement of) meals and required vaccinations.

Crewing internships
Not surprisingly – looking at our versatile fleet - Boskalis also offers crewing internships to students that follow a maritime officer’s (Marof) course. The context of the internship strongly depends on the type of vessel you’re assigned to. It will most likely be one of the vessels in our dredging fleet, for example our trailing suction hopper dredger Queen of the Netherlands. See our vacancy overview for open positions.
