Internship and graduation projects
MARIN is happy to offer students in intermediary and higher professional education (MBO and HBO) and at university the opportunity to gain work experience and/or complete their graduation projects. That’s a great career step because many of MARIN’s graduation projects stem from concrete, real-world requests from colleagues and clients. Our experts will supervise you and you’ll work closely with them. Are you currently studying at a university or polytechnic or following MBO-vocational training and looking for an internship or graduation project? Then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Onboarding at MARIN starts with two days of intensive introduction to all our divisions and teams. We’ll take you on a tour of our buildings and facilities, where ambassadors for each division will give a presentation of what they do and whom you need to see for each subject. ‘Kompas’, our intranet, also offers a handy aid to track down the right people, arrangements, resources and documents. But the real centre of MARIN’s onboarding is the personal supervisor in your division and the daily on-the-job training. Your supervisor will initiate you into MARIN’s systems and ways of working and will hook you up to the right people to work with. For new colleagues from abroad MARIN helps to make the transfer to the Netherlands as smooth as possible. For non-Dutch speakers we can offer an effective language programme.
