Graduation

Create your own success

At Boskalis you yourself are responsible for making your graduation project a success. This means that we also expect you to take the initiative for suggesting a graduation topic. Together we will look at whether the topic is suitable. While it is not a given, in practice it turns out that a graduation project is often a great start to a career with Boskalis.

Internationally oriented graduation projects

Boskalis offers a wide range of graduation opportunities for technical students for example in one of the following subjects: hydraulic engineering, geo-engineering, offshore engineering and structural engineering. Graduation always takes place in the Netherlands. However, which is not to say that your graduation period can’t have an international flavor. As a graduation candidate you may well be heavily involved with the international projects, but you will be based in Papendrecht.

Infrastructure graduation projects

If your interest is more inclined towards the infrastructure projects we execute in the Netherlands we also have ample graduation opportunities for civil engineering students at higher vocational education or university level with a specialism in structural engineering, geo-engineering, building engineering or construction management & engineering. Occasionally we also have graduation opportunities in the area of construction law, procurement law and (industrial) engineering.
