I graduated as a civil engineer in mechanics and I did my work placement with the technical department on a project in Argentina. Usually, I operated from the workshop in Buenos Aires, but I also went regularly on board the ships on the Rio de la Plate. And so, I got to know not only the ships, but also the crew and all sorts of tasks on board such as writing specifications and measuring and designing tools. An eye opener. A unique experience which I had as a student just like that.
