LAST WEEK - HOLIDAY BREAK
Last week all students were free from lectures. This means that there was time for some nice trips.
First of all, the Benco was organised which is a four day excursion to Belgium. On Wednesday two company visits were scheduled in the morning and the afternoon. Early in the morning we travelled to Gunvor, a company in the Botlek that raffinates crude oil into different products. The morning started with an interesting case study and afterwards we had a plant tour and an amazing lunch.
The day continued to Kemira, a chemical company that works with water refinery and also produces paper as one of its main products. In the evening we brought a visit to Bonaparte in Antwerp after which we spent the night in the Antwerp Student Hostel. The next day we brought a visit to Evonik in the bay of Antwerp. Afterwards we travelled to Gent and spent the night in the city. The last day Bayer was our host and afterwards we went to explore Leuven. In the end it was a great trip with many interesting company visits.
At the same time the winter sports holiday was organised. Gerlos was the place where a few TG members enjoyed themselves skiing, snowboarding and during apres ski. Everyone was tired but satisfied after returning to Delft.
Good luck with the new courses everyone!
