10 students from the Faculty of Civil, Industrial and Agricultural Building and 4 from the Faculty of Hydrotechnics participated this year in the internship programme we organised.
For one month, the students were part of an integrated program, which allowed them to get acquainted with all the technical departments within Popp group and to deepen their knowledge in the field for which they signed up for the internship: structural design or geotechnical engineering. We believe that by having information about all the specialities they choose after graduation, students can make an informed decision about the profession they want to pursue.
So students have been introduced by our colleagues to the workflow in the departments of modelling/drafting, structural design, geotechnical engineering and BIM technologies. Then, the traineeship focused on putting theoretical knowledge into practice by working in specific calculation and modelling software. As always, the colleagues who mentored the students made sure that their experience in our design office was as useful and relevant as possible.
Also, with the help of our partner Graitec Romania, we were able to offer the students a workshop on what building information modeling means, how to work collaboratively and the functionalities of Autodesk Construction Cloud, a platform that our colleagues use routinely in the projects they work on.
In order not to limit ourselves to office work, our colleagues organized working visits to construction sites in Bucharest where our team provides technical support, geotechnical studies, monitoring of deep excavations and neighbouring constructions or 3D laser scanning services.
We are confident that the information learned during the internship will be useful for their future engineering careers.
