Engineering students from University of Technology of Pereira, Colombia, visit the Department of Materials Science and Engineering


On 4-6 April 2019 a delegation of students from Universidad Tecnológica de Pereira, Colombia, with sponsorship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD)visited the FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering (WW). The visit was coordinated by Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini (Head, Institute of Biomaterials, and Chair, FAU Department of Materials Science and Engineering), and hosted by Prof. Kyle Webber (Institute of Glass and Ceramics, FAU) and Dr. Liliana Liverani (Institute of Biomaterials, FAU). Fifteen students of mechanical engineering disciplines took part in this study trip, coordinated by Dr. Carlos Andres Mesa (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini and Dr. L. Liverani). The program included presentations of professors and researchers from the different Institutes of the WW Department and by Mr. Jonas Löffler of the Bavarian University Centre for Latin America (BayLat). The students benefited from academic presentations and technical discussions on their topics of interest.
