English translation:study of company consultation files
Explanation:
DCE = dossier de consultation des entreprises/entrepreneurs. Your would be candidate has worked on a project relating to an invitation to tender/bid for a contract in the dock town of Boujdour. More specifically, he has studied the "DCE" or "company consultation files", the files of those who have submitted tenders?

- tender consultation file
- company consultation file

(A French site whose English version uses this term for DCE. I am unsure whether this is the term used in context).

CVs are often hard to translate. They are usually full of jargon and shorthand key words which those in the know will pick up on – are meant to pick up on – but which to neophytes are not clear at all.

I punched « Etude DCE Boujdour » into Google.com which came up with one hit but a useful one, no doubt !

It’s to do with an invitaion to tender for a contract to supply of drinking water to the town of Boujdour.
« DCE » is short for « dossier de consultation des entreprises (entrepreneurs) », a term which is used by others too in contexts relating to public tender consultation processes.

  -> probably you're right, it was just the first thing I came up with. I now think it's more likely an environmental study

disagree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: No. In context, this is no doubt a "dossier de consultation des entrepreneurs" to do with public tender consult. process

European standard directive study?


Explanation:
A "Directive cadre européenne" seems to be a standardized framework approach by the EEC for dealing with, e.g., water resources, workplace health & safety,... --see refs. I guess the term in question implies a study conducted under that framework/those rules

No doubt the EEC has an English equivalent for DCE, but I don't know what it is (ESD?)
