On September 15th-23rd, 2018, the Dean of the School of Civil Engineering, Mr. N. D. Lagaros and the Director of MSc in "Analysis and Design of Earthquake Resistant Structures" Mr. V. Koumousis visited, upon invitation, the University of Fuzhou located in the homonymous city in China as well as the Graduate School of the University of Tsinghua, located in Shenzhen, China. The purpose of the visit was to explore forms of collaboration on educational and research level with the two Chinese Universities. It should be noted that Tsinghua University ranks among the 10 best Universities of the world in Engineering Sciences in most international rankings (Shanghai, QS, USNews).
The delegation of the School of Civil Engineering visited laboratories of different departments in Fuzhou and Tsinghua Universities and met with the faculty members of these laboratories examining the possibility of collaboration. Official meetings were held with the Secretary and Chairman of the University Council, Mr. CHEN Yongzheng (Fuzhou University) and Associate Dean, Prof. YANG Rui Dong (Tsinghua University). Delegations of both Universities had visited the NTUA during June 2018. It was agreed with Mr. CHEN Yongzheng (Fuzhou University) to develop bilateral contacts aiming to:
The establishment of International Joint Labs with subjects related to "Harbor Works" and "Protection of Monuments and Cultural Heritage".
Co-operation at research level through submission of joint research proposals in the framework of bilateral and European programs calls. Exploration of creating joint postgraduate education programs.
Exploration of creating joint postgraduate education programs. With Prof. YANG Rui Dong (Tsinghua University) was discussed the possibility of signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the institutional level and agreed to develop bilateral contacts aimed at:

In 2001, with the thesis of the then postgraduate student of the School of Civil Engineering of NTUA Evgenia Arapaki (see link below), an initiative begun to construct the small dam Damte in South-Western Ethiopia as a pilot project to deal with the intense drought problems in Ethiopia. The project was accomplished (in 2006), with full funding from Greek sources and with the participation of other students and professors of the School.
Now the graduating student of the School Ioanna Kouki is working in the frame of her diploma thesis on the assessment of the dam. Between 8/5 and 14/5/2018, a mission of the School took place in the area with the said student and the member of the Lab Teaching Staff Dr. Haris Saroglou. The mission was made possible thanks to the support and organization of the Ethiopian Honorary Consul in Greece, Terina Armenakis, who managed to find sponsors for the mission. (The School did not contribute financially). The purpose of the visit was to inspect the current situation, assess the operation of the dam and identify any problems.
This small scale irrigation dam is a characteristic example of the positive effect that Civil Engineering works can have on the living conditions of people and local societies.

The General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union (EGU 2017) took place in Vienna in the week of 8-13 April 2018 with 15 000 delegates from 106 countries and 17 300 presentations. Undergraduate and postgraduate students, and teachers from the School of Civil Engineering (30 scientists in total) presented about 50 papers (oral or poster). The students made a good impression on the international audience of the conference, highlighting the high level of studies, research and student-teacher collaboration at our School. At the same time, they were also rewarded with their participation in the international scientific process, the acquaintance with the world's leading protagonists, and the recognition of their work.
The School congratulates its students for their diligence and their successful presentations, which are an advertisement of the School, and wishes them to keep up the good work. At the same time, it regrets that it was unable to support them financially, which would have been unthinkable for the other 105 participating countries.
