New visiting professors at UNIPR

News added on: 17 November 2022

Since yesterday, UNIPR has been hosting two Rwandan professors from the EnREHd partner University “INES-Ruhengeri“. The Rwandan teachers will be hosted at the Department of Engineering and Architecture and at the Department of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability and they will be supervised by Roberto Valentino as academic tutor, who is professor and coordinator of the EnRHEd Project.

During their permanence in Italy, which will last until mid-December, the two lecturers will carry out many activities in the fields of Structural Engineering and Geoengineering, among which lectures and seminars, and will have the opportunity to share their research projects with UNIPR’s teaching staff as well as to implement teaching methods by visiting research centres and laboratories.

In addition, some meetings have also been organised with some companies, including multinational ones, operating in the field of civil and geotechnical engineering which will explain the various constructions and consolidation projects that are currently underway.

So, there will certainly be no shortage of inspiration for these two lecturers, who will be asked, once they are back in Rwanda, to develop new teaching material which must be presented to the students of INES as a result of their italian experience within the EnRHEd project.

Happy month in Italy from the whole EnRHEd team!
