TCL recently hosted twelve part-time Civil Engineering students of the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) for a tour of its Claxton Bay plant and Mayo Quarry.
The visit was in partial fulfillment of the requirements for their ‘Construction Science and Materials’ practicum. This is a final level development of the National Engineering Technician’s Diploma (NETD) in Civil Engineering.
Guillermo Rojo, General Manager delivered a captivating welcome address as he shared aspects of his work experience and spoke about the importance of education in widening their prospects for the future.
Avaleen Mooloo, RML’s Operations Coordinator also laid a solid foundation as she educated the students on the concrete manufacturing process. Next was a fascinating ‘live’ demonstration in the lab conducted by Salsa Joefield, Lab Technician.
The visit concluded with a ‘behind the scenes’ view of the Quarry by Kurt Rocke, Foreman.
The students are expected to complete the programme in January 2021.
