23 students of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering (discipline: construction) of the Gdańsk University of Technology took part in workshops organised on April 26th and 27th by IAESTE and the DORACO Construction Corporation as part of the CaseWeek. The team that built the best roof construction has a chance to serve an apprenticeship at DORACO during holidays.
4 student groups participated in the workshops, creating their own constructions. DORACO experts chose the team which construction had passed stress tests best (deflection had been measured for the weight of 300 kg). Furthermore, DORACO engineers considered the time necessary to build a given construction and quantities of materials used – the lighter the construction (but enduring as well), the more points for its creators.
The winning team consisted of: Joanna Klimek, Marta Mikielewicz, Mikołaj Plata, Kamil Linstedt, Bartłomiej Pikarski, Mateusz Rogala. We congratulate the winners and thank all CaseWeek participants for their huge commitment!
IAESTE CaseWeek is the largest series of engineering workshops in Poland. It is held in 8 cities, at 9 technical universities. The DORACO Construction Corporation participated for the third time.
