    After completing my thesis at Deltares I was given the opportunity to start as a junior. Working at Deltares is very different from graduation. You are part of a team. You work together with other colleagues on many different projects. Topics with which you are familiar but there is also room for further development in very different fields. This makes working at Deltares diverse and challenging.

  • Tiaravanni Hermawan Jr Advisor/Researcher

    For me it is important that sustainability is Deltares’ core principle in the research and advisory activities. Deltares ensures that activities contribute to global agendas, for instance the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, as a knowledge organization, Deltares applies state-of-the-art approaches and innovative ideas in its research and advisory content. This challenges the employees to be adaptive, fast learning and continuously improving. In my opinion, this challenge is inspiring. Colleagues with diverse expertise are willing to help each other and our international working environment supports us to exchange ideas.”
