Tour to Seville

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

This year, students elected Seville for Tour destination, which proved to be an excellent choice! During 6 days, 71 undergraduates discovered both Seville and Cadiz and visited the La Constitucion de 1812 Bridge, the Port of Seville and the Dragon Bridge. Everyone had a great time, enjoying the lovely weather, celebrating the end of term, meeting new people, bonding with students from other years and for most of us discovering Seville for the first time! Tour is always a rich experience, relevant to Civil Engineering, culturally stimulating, in a relaxed environment.

Special thanks to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College Union, Shell, Vinci, Metis, AKT II, and CGCA for their support.

SSS by Dr. Craske

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

We had the honour of having our very our Dr. Craske give a talk on flows, but also on science, engineering and the world of research. It was extemely interesting and beneficial to see these topics through a lecturer's eyes and grasp the importance of optimisation in nature. 

We hope to have you come again!

Site Visit to Damac Tower

Posted on by Remi B Pelletier

Incredibly interesting site visit of the DAMAC Tower organized by Multiplex! This £240 million project consisting of two towers of 50 and 24 storeys has the particularity of being located right next to the tube. This makes the future buildings very attractive but also puts huge pressure on health and safety. Thank you to Multiplex!
