Authorities of the URACCAN Bilwi venue met with representatives of the Spanish architecture company Taller de Arquitectura Sánchez Hornero (TASH Nicaragua), who are responsible for overseeing the construction of the new Regional Hospital of Bilwi, Northern Caribbean of Nicaragua, with the aim of reaching an agreement for civil engineering students to carry out their professional practices in that project.
The Noé Guadamuz master's degree, coordinator in the area of Science, Technology and Environment, ensured that the rapprochement with companies in charge of large projects is substantial for students to gain experience. "It has to do with different stages of construction carried out by the Bilwi Regional Hospital. At the moment they are with the terracería part and will subsequently continue with the piloting (...). It really was a very fruitful meeting, because we're going to be including students to their internships," URACCAN's official explained.
Guadamuz emphasized that these processes "come to reinforce our work as a university in the training of quality professionals, because students will have that real approach in their field of work (...). It's a pretty big project and students are going to have the opportunity to do their jobs and everything they've learned all the way to the race."
While Carlos Omar Durom Ocón, representative TASH Nicaragua, stated that they went to URACCAN in order to provide spaces for students "from the civil engineering or construction-related careers to be incorporated into supervisory work as practitioners and thus increase professionalism within students or graduates of the university".
