About the MMD

27 Companies, 200 students, combining challenge and innovation!


The aim of the Maritime Match Day is to help the students of the S.G. “William Froude” to get familiar with companies that they might be in contact with later in their career. This day aimed at both the starting-first-year-student and the almost-finishing-master-student, and everyone in between.

The day is set up so that both students and companies can experience the best. Different elements will make this day a success in which the utmost demands are being made of both sides. First of all, the trading floor is very suitable for networking. What makes the MMD unique is that there are engineers who can hold an interesting conversation about working at the particular company, but also to gather information for running an internship, student course or graduation assignment.

Following on the fair floor, six cases are offered. The student can indicate his / her preference by registration and will then be matched with a company. Last year, there was a case specifically for first-year students - which was for the first time and a big success! During the cases, a lot of adaptabilities will be required from the student. With an innovative look, solutions must be found for non-everyday problems. Cooperation in the cases is also crucial for solving the issue.

After the cases, as in previous years, speed dates are offered for third-year students and older. Through these speed dates, the student can conduct a one-on-one conversation with the company of his / her preference. At the same time as the speed dates, an additional reading will take place in the auditorium for those who do not qualify for a speed-date.
