Lunch Lecture MTBS

On the 5th of October, MTBS visited our faculty to give an interesting lunch lecture on value engineering within the limits of port development. The lecture was given by Ivo Tukker, a consultant at MTBS, who also provided better insights into working at MTBS.  Ivo was accompanied by Stephanie and Wijnand, two hydraulic students who are currently doing their thesis at MTBS, who provided some more input from the perspective of a student. We would like to thank Ivo and MTBS for the lecture and hope that everyone enjoyed their time!
