Rein Doctor, trainee during 2nd and 3rd year of study Mechanical Engineering – Albeda College Schiedam
“During my study Mechanical Engineering, I did my 2nd and 3rd year internship at the De Jong Combustion and at the engineering plant of De Jong. First I did a study on how much time was spent on each part of the engineering process, using drawings, designs and time registration. During my second internship I researched the efficiency of work processes in the factory. In order to get a good picture of these processes, I actually worked in the factory. Eventually, I wrote a report to create more efficiency.
I was guided well during my internship. If needed, engineers were at my side to give good explanation. Important as well: I was taken seriously. Discussing the implementation of my assignment with the supervisor was never a problem. As a trainee it’s nice to be given freedom. To be able to do research in a way that suits me, with enough opportunities to discuss whether I was on the right track. Both of my internships at De Jong were pleasant experiences for me.”
