Visit to Agbar Tower during successful Mid Term Week in Barcelona
17 Jan 2013 in The Network by David Ward
The 64 current UNITECH Programme year students made an enjoyable evening visit to Agbar, our Corporate Partner in Barcelona during the recent Mid Term Week. The visit included a tour of the Tower with its panoramic view over the city and beyond – specially arranged for UNITECH - and a detailed introduction to Agbar and how it interfaces with UNITECH. Five UNITECH Alumni who now work for Agbar were on hand to share their experiences with the student group. Through this visit the links between Agbar and UNITECH were intensified and the students were able to see inside one of our Corporate Partners.
The rest of the week saw the students working hard on their Case Assignments – a set of tough innovation challenges provided by our Corporate Partners E.ON, Evonik, Geberit, Hilti, Imerys, Infineon, Schott, SKF and Vorwerk. Hard days and long nights were spent in producing some impressive results, and the Assignment Presentations on Friday showed the promise of good things to come in the Case reports.
A great Mid Term Week, where many participants battled through colds and flu to stay in action, was made possible by the excellent facilities and support provided by UPC Barcelona.
