Engineering Students Travel to Hong Kong
Several Columbia Engineering students traveled to Hong Kong over winter break as part of the Winter Global Educational Experience.
Students joined Earth and Environmental Engineering Professor Xi Chen for the nine-day trip. They met faculty, students and representatives of leading industries and companies in urban infrastructure, transportation, nuclear energy, nanotechnology, and sustainability while enjoying Hong Kong, one of the world’s largest and most vibrant cities. Students attended seminars and site visits, while also enjoying some of the cultural sights of Hong Kong – including Stanley Market, Wong Tai Sin Temple and Repulse Bay – and met with Columbia Engineering alumni living and working in Hong Kong.
Students who made the trip include Austin Barnett ’13, Ben Aguilar ’14, Devante Bledsoe ’14, Tyler Lancaster ’14, and Ethan Kochav ’14.
