Warm Welcome at UBB

Today the team of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (BUW) has been welcomed by the president of the University of Battambang (UBB), Mrs Sieng Emtotim.

In presence of all facilitators of BUW and UBB, as well as the dean and vice-dean of the faculty of science and technology of UBB, Mr. Cheyvuth and Mr Manit respectively, the Cambodian students had the chance to express their expectations about the upcoming two weeks of the common workshops. Although most of the students had a background of nuclear engineering (bachelor), they were happy to participate in this course, which is strongly related to environmental science and engineering.

"Adapted environmental engineering is an increasingly important issue for Cambodia". Mr Jürgen Stäudel, the initiator of the project iReBa from BUW expressed his gratitude to UBB to facilitate this course in Battambang and emphasized the mutual learning experience for the students and facilitators of both universities. "Contributing to the fast development in Cambodia with adapted concepts for infrastructure systems is an honor to the BUW and the Bauhaus-Institute for infrastructure Systems ("

The international student group of BUW has at that time been already on the way to Battambang and arrived late in the evening with the bus from Thailand.
