Alumni testimonial

Alumna Tanya Huizer

Tanya followed the Master Environmental Sciences and specialised in the management of marine- and coastal systems.

Environmental Sciences was a broad degree, which means that ARCADIS can use my broad range of skills on very different projects.
She selected this master because of its diversity in courses: ranging from chemistry to policy, and from water quality to soil science. She did her master internship at the ‘River-, Coast and Sea Group’ of the engineering agency ARCADIS. After she finished her internship in 2011, she was offered a job at ARCADIS as a project leader.

Tanya now works on a broad range of issues on a project-by-project basis, such as the coastal reinforcements in North-Holland and the efficient use of tidal energy in China. These projects often run simultaneously and can last several months to several years. Tanya is very happy with her time as a student in Wageningen.

“Environmental Sciences was a broad degree, which means that ARCADIS can use my broad range of skills on very different projects. An environmental background, and the concrete examples that Wageningen University uses, can be very useful if you want to work as a project manager.”
