Take This Chance
The sea plays an very important role in the history of The Netherlands. Half of the country is below sea level and much of the land has been reclaimed from the sea. Our industry is known worldwide for building dikes and embankments.
Water management is an essential skill and the sea will play an important role in our future as the rising sea levels poses a serious risk to our society, but the sea also brings opportunities to generate renewable energy.
