Internship: Civil Engineering & AI
Location: Capelle aan den IJssel, Heerenveen, Almere
We are looking for interns!
'Eager to learn, ambitions, looking for a change to develop yourself in your field of expertise? At Antea Group you will get the opportunity and the freedom to grow and proof yourself in a challenging environment! It will be an educational experience and a good start of your career.'
Digitalisation is noticeable in many industries, the civil engineering industry is no exception. All of us are focussing on development and digitalisation. As a result, engineers are looking more and more into 'smart' solutions, using computer power. We from Antea Group want to take this even a step further: we want to discover what Artificial Intelligence can mean for us in our design processes. That is why we are looking for interns who want to work on a cooperative assignment in a mixed field of Computer Sciences and Civil Engineering, building an AI for a Civil Engineering purpose.
We are interested in two broad topics:
- How can we design a concrete bridge deck with enough accuracy for the initial design phase based on past designs?
- How can we use AI to interpret geo-mechanical data (CPT) based on data interpreted in the past?
One could think of many technical questions regarding the use of such a system, like:
- What machine learning algorithm is most suited for the specified problem?
- How can the accuracy of the AI be assessed?
- What design differences are found between the human- and AI-interpretation when the result is obtained or used?
- In what way can the trained model be expended for a broader use?
To answer these research questions successfully, knowledge will be needed of both Computer Science and Civil Engineering.
The internship will provide you with the opportunity to gain practical experience within one of the largest engineering consultancies nationwide. It will be a chance to apply and demonstrate your engineering skills and utilise your academic skills in a practical problem. It will also provide you with opportunity to work together with and learn from someone who has (had) a completely different education.
What we ask of you
In a world that is continuously changing we are looking for people with ambition and a passion for what they do. People who combine their professional knowledge with the motivation to achieve the best results and want to learn. When you apply fort his internship, this is what we expect from you:
- You are a civil engineering and/or a computer science student at a university pursuing a BSc or MSc degree
- You are a team-player
- You are interested in learning from and gain experience in two different fields of study
- You are pro-active
- You have good analytical and problem-solving skills
The preferred starting time is September of 2021, this is however not mandatory. The preferred working language is Dutch, however English is also possible.
As the internship concerns both Civil Engineering and Computer Science, it may be interesting to arrange a cooperative internship between two or more students from different fields of study (e.g. multidisciplinary study). Applying as a team from the start is preferred, however not mandatory.
