Educational Site-Visit for UNIC Civil and Environmental Engineering Students at Palm Beach Hotel & Resort Construction Site

The University of Nicosia is pleased to announce that undergraduate students from its Civil and Environmental Engineering programme recently participated in an educational site-visit to the construction site of the Palm Beach Hotel & Resort in Larnaka. This visit, which took place on 14 May 2024, provided the students with a valuable opportunity to observe and learn about ongoing construction activities and the associated challenges in various engineering disciplines.

During the visit, students were given detailed insights into several key aspects of the construction process, including:

  • Geotechnical Engineering: Understanding the soil conditions and how they influence the foundation and construction process of the structure.
  • Structural Engineering: Learning about the design and construction of the various structural elements to ensure the stability and safety of the building.
  • Environmental Engineering: Learning about the measures taken to minimize the environmental impact of the construction activities.
  • Health & Safety: Gaining knowledge about the protocols and practices in place to ensure the safety of workers and compliance with health and safety regulations.

The Department of Engineering extends its sincere gratitude to Psaras Construction, the project’s contractor, for their exceptional hospitality and for providing such an enriching experience for the University’s students. Their willingness to share their expertise and facilitate this site-visit has greatly enhanced the practical learning experience of our future engineers.

This site-visit is part of the University of Nicosia’s ongoing commitment to providing hands-on learning opportunities that complement our rigorous academic curriculum. By engaging with real-world projects, our students are better prepared to meet the challenges of their future careers in civil and environmental engineering.
