The Engineering Department at GUtech organizes an excursion to Germany every year so in September 2017, 36 Semester 7 Students from the Process, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering Degree Programs of the Engineering Department at GUtech, will travel to Aachen in Germany to complete the Measurement Techniques Laboratory Course and to go on some Industrial Excursions to see the Industry in the surrounding area. Dr.-Ing. Najah Al Mhanna, the Head of Engineering Department, has been coordinating and organising the excursion since 2015. His aim is to give the chance to the engineering students to participate in practical courses and to visit some well-known companies in Germany. This Trip is being funded by the Engineering Department at GUtech and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
Dr.-Ing. Najah Al Mhanna, the Head of the Department of Engineering, will accompany the students during the first week which is planned to be for the industrial excursions. The Students will be supervised throughout the trip by Dr. Hind Barghash (Assistant Professor), Dr. Roghaieh Parvizsedghy (Assistant Lecturer) and Dr. Thomas Lattimore (Research Assistant and Coordinator for the Department of Engineering). This experience will provide Students with first-hand experience of the German University-Level Education system and it will provide them with some experience of Industry in Germany. In addition, it will help them learn more about the German and European Cultures. Overall, it is hoped that this will strongly encourage these mid-high achieving Students to pursue Masters and PhD studies in Germany and Europe once they graduate from GUtech.
