On Monday, 11th November 2019, a group of CVE students had a field trip to practically improve their knowledge about steel and reinforcement in buildings. The field trip was accompanied by Dr. Ahmed Adnan Gheni, who is a faculty member in the civil engineering department.
The first trip was to Qaiwan City where they build new two towers. Students had first-hand knowledge of the process of getting the construction materials to the site and how they approve using them throughout standard tests. In addition, students had the chance to see all reinforced concrete members that they studied in their relative courses. Finally, they got more information about the finishing, utilities, and reinforcement of the towers.
The second trip was to Azadi Steel Manufacturing Company. Students got deep knowledge about the process of manufacturing different kinds of steel structures such as tanks, pipes, communication towers. In addition, they were able to see the steel galvanizing and painting procedure.
