Copenhagen Metro is a massive design work. It is connecting the city, and making it easy to get around the capital. Moreover, it was the subject of my master thesis.
In short; the metro is a project very close to my heart.
I finalised my thesis more than 10 years ago. When finalised, going into geotechnical engineering seemed like a very natural choice, and my first job after graduation was in Australia in a geotechnical firm.
One day, I received an email from my advisor on the Copenhagen Metro thesis, suggesting a cup of coffee, when I was back in Denmark.
With the Australian tan and sunglasses in my hair, I met him in his office at COWI's headquarters in Denmark some weeks later. To my surprise, the head of the tunnel department was also present. And just to top it off - they offered me a job.
Eight months later, I started as a geotechnical engineer in COWI’s tunnel department. And I was lucky enough to get close to one of my favorite projects again; the Copenhagen Metro.
