Engineering students visit Darbandikhan Dam on class field trip

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 20:15

 

Students from AUIS's Engineering Geology class recently visited the Darbandikhan Dam on a recent school-sponsored field trip to learn how concepts taught in the academic program are applied in real-world settings. 

Taught by Mohamed Shwani, Adjunct Assistant Professor, students made the trip to learn more about dam structures, fluid mechanics, and maintenance of the infrastructure projects. Students were curious to also learn about the effects of recent earthquakes and heavy rains on the structure and safety measures taken.
