Dr Hsein Kew, our Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering, recently played host to a group of 20 first year Civil Engineering students from Hogeschool INHOLLAND (Netherlands) during their 4-day study trip to London.
Dr Kew talked to the group about the Faculty – and the excellent courses available in the School of Civil Engineering and Construction. The visitors were then taken on a laboratory tour to see our state of the art facilities for themselves.
During the day, the Dutch students enjoyed a fun bridge building exercise and met Kingston’s own Dutch speaking final year BSc Civil Engineering students, Mr Daniel Scavo and Mr Mohamed Dirie.
“Looking back at the study trip, and speaking on behalf of the students, I can say that we feel privileged that you, together with your colleague and students, spent so much effort to receive us at Kingston University. We really felt welcome and enjoyed the presentation, the tour in the labs, the bridge building activity and the personal contact,” Niek Brandsma, academic in-charge of the study trip.
