On June 5th, 2021, the Civil Engineering Department of Tishk International University Sulaimani (TIU) organized a scientific trip to one of the largest brick factories in the region, Aso Brick Factory. The aim of the visit was to introduce the students to the stages of the brick manufacturing process and to identify the types of bricks used for different purposes in construction.
The stages that constitute the manufacturing of bricks were explained to the students, including the types of soil used and the tests applied on the soil. During the last session of the trip, the students visited the factory laboratory to further investigate the important tests that are conducted to ensure the quality of the bricks and to authorize their use in the construction industry. The trip was attended by first-grade Civil Engineering students and supervised by Mr. Zhir Fouad.
