It makes a lasting impression on graduates.

Often for them it’s a matter of looking for the ideal first job that will launch them onto the job market.

Providing adequate coaching is necessary here, but it’s not always a walk in the park.

We attach great importance to closely monitoring talent, because often, what people lack in experience is made up for in spades with motivation. We want to make sure that these people get the care and attention they need.


That’s exactly what led us to develop a special route for young graduates.

Are you a graduate with a bachelor in engineering or electromechanics, or have you recently graduated as an engineer or civil engineer?

Do our activities appeal to you?

Is a pleasant atmosphere among colleagues important to you?

Would you like to know what we can do for each other?

Visser & Smit Hanab SA/NV as Sponsor

As an organisation, it’s important for us as Visser & Smit Hanab to keep the space between employee and employer as small as possible. For that reason, we annually make a number of informed choices that reflect a focus on social responsibility:

  • we are the proud main sponsor of the students’ association of Engineers and Laboratory Technicians established at Odisee, i.e. “Moeder Kila”.
  • For several years, we’ve also been a permanent fixtureat the job fair organised by Odisee.
  • We are also a permanent sponsor of “Poutrix”, the technical students’ association of civil engineers at Ghent University.

Sven Roegiers, Junior

As a graduate industrial engineer, I was fortunate to get a job at Visser & Smit Hanab SA/NV. Seriously, it was a real stroke of luck! Because here I’ve had the chance over a period of two years to get to know the company in every aspect and through its activities during a traineeship. This means that every six months I’m employed in a different job in a different department.


  • For the first six months I worked on calculating electromechanical works in the Projects Department, more specifically the budgets for water treatment plants, water production centres and heat distribution plants.
  • After that I’ll be employed as a site manager for the implementation of the electromechanical equipment in water treatment plants, water production centres and public swimming pools. It’s incredibly exciting to be able to work on projects that will carry out such an essential social purpose for several decades to come.
  • After eighteen months in the Projects Department I move to the Industry Department, based in Sint-Gillis-Waas. Here I’ll work on the construction of instrument and electrical cabling in a petrochemical company.
  • The last six months of my traineeship involves project management. This means I’ll get an internal insight into Prince 2 (Projects IN Controlled Environments version 2); what’s striking about this is that the role in a project takes priority over the job within the company, which promotes the efficiency and quality of the project. External training at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and internal training days are also part of the package.


In consultation with the management I can then work in the department that suits me best. The friendly atmosphere within the company is also one of the great things about Visser & Smit Hanab. It’s only with sufficient motivation that you can keep the high spirits needed to face a new challenging task or project. That’s what’s so great about the job. You always have a goal to work towards. Each time it’s a new start on a new project, which you can approach even better and more efficiently. Every day you learn new techniques, but you also get to know new people every day.
