The ITACET Foundation was delighted to receive recent news from one of its scholarship students for the current academic year 2017-2018.
John Paul Ramirez Santa from Colombia was awarded a scholarship by the Foundation to follow the MSc in Tunnelling and Underground Space at Warwick University in the United Kingdom.
Here's what he has to say about his experience so far:
"The first term at Warwick started on October the 2nd. Up to now I have been through one module, Geological Investigation and Ground Characterization in addition to some tutorials in preparation for the final exam in January. Next week we start Underground Construction Methods. The lectures with the first module have been excellent, especially since it is the first time I have got to know professionals with so much experience in the field who share with us what they discovered during construction projects and how they dealt with it. I have learned things I would never find in a textbook. I have been putting in many personal study hours in order to grasp what was given in the lectures, but it is an exciting process, because I get to learn more about something I really like. And the campus is really nice!".
The Foundation wishes Jean Paul all the best for the future.
