Each year, engineering students from Delft University of Technology embark on a Study Tour to visit institutes, universities and companies in the Mechanical and Biomedical industries. The society of Biomechanical and Biomedical engineering students, ‘Antoni van Leeuwenhoek’ (AvL) organizes this yearly international excursion with the aim of enabling students to witness engineering and technology in foreign local industries. The Study Tour reflects the increasingly prominent role of globalization in the engineering industry. We believe that the best engineers must be familiar with how technology is developed in other parts of the world, and how it can be of influence in different cultures. This is why our participants are keen to experience foreign companies, learn from other engineers and enjoy new cultural settings.
The destination of Study Tour 2017 will be Helsinki and Saint Peterburg! We will visit interesting companies, universities and cultural sights in these beautiful cities . The Study Tour 2017 committee is very greatful for the help of the following companies:
