This excursion is related to the course CIE5122 Capita Selecta. This excursion is also very interesting for students who followed CIE4115 Steel Structures 2 or who would like to follow CIE4121 Steel Structures 3. Students will get the unique opportunity to see the fabrication of steel and steel plates in the factory of TATA Steel.
The afternoon will start with a lunch, followed by interesting presentations and a movie. After that, different parts of the factory will be visited.
We can have a look at the hot-rolling process, where a red hot steel plate will be rolled to a 1mm thin plate over a length of 1km. TATA Steel will also show us the dip galvanising line for large plates up to 50 m.
Make sure you are at the train station of Beverwijk at 12.40. From there a bus provided by TATA Steel will bring you to the factory in IJmuiden.
There are 50 spots available, first come first serve. Please note that you are expected to come once you have signed up. It is possible to sign up until 6 December.
