With a total of 15 participants the schools at university started on 16.07.2019 at our institute. For the students, some of whom come from Great Britain and the United Arab Emirates, the day began with a lecture on the records of architecture. Huge skyscrapers, shipyard halls and long tunnels show how different the demands on civil engineers are. After a tour of the hall, it became vivid to touch the concrete and a 4-point bending test. Despite numerous cracks, the reinforced concrete beam only broke after a visible deflection.
