On Thursday, March 4th, 2021, the Architectural Engineering Department of Tishk International University coordinated a scientific trip for 2nd year students to both; “Harem hospital” and “Aburynasan” residential project. The trip was aimed to give students a better understanding of the theory they are taught in class, and provide them a opportunity to observe the applied architectural concepts.
Both projects used different types of structures: the first was a steel structure extension to the old existing building, and the other was a normal reinforced concrete beam & column structure. The visitation allowed the students to examine the construction details, such as expansion joints, construction joints, columns, beams, shear walls… etc.
In both projects, an engineer accompanied the students and explained the construction process, describing the foundation until slabs and finishing materials, so that the students can connect their theoretical lectures to what they have seen in practice.
