On may 16th, 18 students and 9 professionals were invited for first the Hydraulic Dinner of 2019. The Dinner was hosted by the lovely staff of La Tasca and ‘Het Waterbouwdispuut’. After some icebreaking starters and some small appetizers, the night started and people settled in their places.
From the start it became clear that this wasn’t a usual night. The menu was kept a secret and companies gave their presentations both educational and informal.
As the night continued the dishes come out of the kitchen onto our tables. As everybody got its plates it became clear that the chef wanted the guests to envy each other. On each table multiple different and delicious plates were served. And people were bending over backwards to get a look at each other’s plates. In the meantime, first Arcadis, then Fugro and finally Rijkswaterstaat all tried to accomplish that same look in the student’s eyes. ‘I want that’. They gave their view on how the future should look and how we as students could be part of it. With questions from the top hat we tried to put them on the spot. All of them successfully convinced us that they were a good place to work.
For those of you who missed it, no worries there will be a new edition next year.
