The first two weeks of the summer holidays we will visit some of the most extraordinary civil projects in the south east of China. Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Macau and Guangzhou will be visited by a group of 23 students and two professors from Building- and Structural Engineering.
Everybody already knows Hong Kong and it’s obvious why it will be interesting for civil engineers to visit it. Less known are Shenzhen and Guangzhou, even though if you paid a little attention during Special Structures you must have heard about the big Canton Tower. Besides this tower, there are also other very interesting civil projects to visit in Guangzhou. Shenzhen is a city which has grown from a little village to the metropole it is nowadays in less than 40 years. A lot of construction is still going on and a collection of world’s highest buildings are situated in Shenzhen.

After having done some committees elsewhere, this is the first time I will be organising something for U-BASE. I like the combination of going on a trip with fellow students and having the opportunity to see some nice civil projects and meet the companies organising them. As chairman of the study tour committee I will make sure everything will go according to plan, and if not, adjust on time, so we can organise the best study tour ever. I’m really looking forward to this summer!"
Besides studying structural engineering, travelling, learning new culture, language and embracing the diversity were something I was looking forward to when I left Nepal last summer to study at TU Delft. I love to explore new places, meet new people, share stories and cultural experiences. With each of these experiences I get to know more about myself, and the multi-faceted world we live in. I joined the committee because I wanted to be involved in planning the trip and make it a memorable one. Also, it gives me a lot of opportunities to learn. As a secretary, I am responsible to coordinate with the team with internal resources and update enthusiastic participants about the details of the trip. Join us for the trip and make it a memorable one with fun filled activities and lots of opportunities to learn and explore."
Analysis of Slender Structures, cycling, beers and everything about football.
In addition to studying Structural Engineering, I like to explore more things in my future field of work. This is why I enjoy the excursions and other small trips. Since I also love visiting new places (especiallly outside of Europe), the Study tour is going to be even more exciting! In the organizing committee, I will take care of the money that you are going to give us. Being the treasurer, I will make sure that every cent is well spent!"
When I started with my Master this year, I got the chance to join the short trip to Valencia. This showed me how awesome it is to go abroad with U-base. With all the amazing people at the association I am confident that this years Study Tour will be unforgettable. But, because we have epic plans and we want you to have a great deal if you join us, we need to co-operate with companies from our sector to make it feasible. I will be the guy who is responsible for those contacts. I really enjoy this function and most of all I cannot wait to travel the world with you this summer!"
Last year I joined two journeys from U-BASE, the short trip to Berlin and the Study Tour to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. This made me very enthusiastic to join committee and organize the next Study Tour. I will plan and organize activities on the tour ranging from large scale construction projects to cultural and sightseeing adventures. My aim is to make the study tour a fantastic and memorable trip by visiting many great sites."
Before my graduation next year, I want to do something in addition to my master. To challenge myself, it had to be something that I've never done before combined with something that I love. What I haven’t done yet, was being in a committee. What I love is traveling. Therefore I joined the Study Tour committee. I will be in charge of logistics to make sure that you’ll have a smooth transition from one location to the other. I'm really excited to organize this trip and to share the experiences we get along the way."
This year I will be the Qualitate Qua of the Study Tour Committee. As Qualitate Qua I am the
link between the board and the committee and try to help them organizing a
memorable trip! It is my job to keep
them motivated and focused, but I believe this isn’t needed this year. I’m sure
this group will organize one of the most amazing Study Tours in years."
