Intern HBO/WO Water Management/ Environmental Engineering

Are you a HBO/WO student Water Management/ Environmental Engineering and looking for a challenging internship or a parttime job?
This is your chance!

Job description

Worldwide, there is more stress on natural water resources. Therefore, it is crucial to treat waste streams to recover water and possibly minerals, for reuse in the industry, reducing the dependency on new resources.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a membrane-filtration technology that has been in use for decades. RO systems can waste up to 40% of the feed water through the production of brine, containing the rejected minerals.

In this research, the treatment of water by a closed-circuit configuration of RO – closed-circuit desalination (CCD) or semi dead end reverse osmosis (SDRO)- will be investigated. This technique enables the treatment of feedwater with significant higher recovery, usage of less chemicals and lower energy usage.

The experimental setup for this project is a totally automated pilot installation that can produces 2.5 cubic meter per hour water. The results from the SDRO will be compared with the results from common RO installation.

This project can also be completed through a parttime job. In that case, you need to be available at least 2 days a week for a minimum period of 6 months.


We are looking for an intrinsically motivated and proactive person:

  • water management, environmental or chemical engineering students
  • excellent communication skills
  • proficiency in written and spoken English.
  • affinity with membrane filtration
