Students and staff from 2nd year in the BSc Quantity Surveying and BSc Construction Management and Engineering programmes recently went on a study visit to Berlin, visiting the Beuth Hochschule (Technological University), and several of Berlin’s museums.

 

The students met with staff at the Beuth Hochschule, and learnt about their study programmes in architecture, civil engineering and building services, including a new degree programme in Green Building Design. The students also visited the lab facilities and the main tropical greenhouse in the Berlin Botanical Gardens.  Staff at the Hochschule had a significant involvement in the renovation of this building. 

 

The second day of study trip involved a visit to the Reichstag (German parliament) building, designed by Foster & Partners.  Students also visited the Holocaust Memorial, Potsdamer Platz, Checkpoint Charlie and the Topography of Terror museum.

 

On the final day, the students visited the Charlottenburg Schloss (palace). This is the largest palace in Berlin, and the only surviving royal residence in the city dating back to the time of the Hohenzollern family.
