Students on the Hard Rock Tour

Published: 20 March 2015

The Students on the MSc programs Sustainable Process Engineering, Natural Resources Engineering and Civil Engineering are currently on a tour of Norrbotten and Västerbotten where they show off the subject Mining and Rock. The tour is funded by Boliden and LKAB's foundation.

–  One of the main aims of education at the university is to develop individuals as autonomous actors in its field. A good way to assimilate this is through study visits where they get an overview of the activities and field exercises where they work with business related problems. Students will receive both a glimpse into their future work, take note of the industry's challenges and approaches, but also able to meet with representatives from the business area and acquire a network, said Catrin Edelbro, Head of Studies atTthe Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering at Luleå University of Technology.
