IAESTE CaseWeek workshops – Silesian University of Technology


IAESTE CaseWeek is the largest series of case study workshops in Poland. The assumption of the project is to bring together the academic and business environment. This undertaking has taken place annually since 2008. Each edition of the project is becoming more and more popular among both the students and commercial entrepreneurs as well as the public benefit organisers, representatives of education and the media.

This year, the representatives of IVIA S.A. had the pleasure to share their experience and acquired knowledge with a large group of construction engineering students.

The workshops were divided into three blocks.

In the first part, we presented a brief history of our company and its dynamic development in recent years. The students present at the meeting could familiarize themselves with several major contracts implemented in recent years.

The second part was devoted to the leading industry in our company, i.e. the road design. The students had the opportunity to find out what the "design-build" contracts which our company is currently taking active part in are. Our designers presented the students with the program – Autocad Civil 3D, in which we design, and showed interesting aspects of this software, the knowledge of which is necessary for the implementation of the commissioned tasks.

In the third part, we focused on the second, equally important part of our company, that is the bridge industry. This time, again, the main topic was to discuss the program on which our bridges workers work every day. We are talking about the MIDAS Engineering Software. The issues discussed related to one of the bridge issues and the way it was solved with the use of modern software, as with the knowledge and experience of our designers.

At the end of the workshop, anybody who wanted to ask a question had the opportunity to do so and learn more about our work. The entire event was ended with a commemorative photo, which you can see below. All the pictures are available on our IVIA S.A. Facebook profile.
