Beyond The Classroom: Industry Site Visits

23 July 2018

It is important to learn industry-relevant theoretical concepts in the classroom. However, learning also takes place beyond the classroom.

At TUM Asia, the university encourages students to not only learn through the guidance of their professors, but also to acquire real hands on practical experience. For this purpose, yearly site visits are conducted to help our students gain greater exposure to the industry, both within and outside Singapore.

On 11 October 2017, the Industrial Chemistry Master students paid a visit to the Singapore facilities of Linde Gas, a global leading company in the industrial gases market. From a field trip to the plant site to interactions with the experienced engineers on site, the students gained a fruitful experience learning about the operations of the gas industry.

On 16 October 2017, a total of 62 Chemical Engineering students made a visit to DELO in Germany, during the students’ Overseas Immersion Programme. DELO, a leading manufacturer of industrial adhesives for different sectors that has been in operations for more than 50 years, welcomed the students for a short visit. The students attended lectures on adhesive applications and laboratory practice and participated in company tours to find out more about the latest developments in the industry. Ms. Sabine Herold, Managing Director of DELO, was also present to meet the students during the visit.
