The newly founded Engineering Club at AUIS is working hard to get future engineering students familiar with engineering in a practical way.

Construction site visits for all departments of engineering provide a great opportunity for students to see the real life and work of engineers. For instance, students get a taste of what the construction industry has in store for them after graduation. Such visits are also beneficial for them theoretically because it builds a bridge between what the students learn in class and what they see on sites.

On March 6 and 7, 2016, two groups of students along with Ms. Raguez Taha, faculty member and advisor of the Engineering Club, went to the construction site of Magma Square Mall, located next to AUIS.

Malia Group, which is constructing the Magma Square Mall, gave students the opportunity to visit the construction site. Mr. Anuar, Site Manager, offered his time and gave a tour around the sit, explaining the different components and processes of the site.

This field trip to the Magma Mall construction was a good experience that improved our knowledge in the area of construction engineering. The engineering club would like to thank all the members of Magma Square Mall construction site, a special thanks to Mr. Anuar for providing his time and this valuable opportunity to the students.
