Scientific Visit to the St. Peter Seminary for Chaldean Patriarchate

On February 1st, 2022, the architectural department at CUE conducted a scientific visit to St. Peter Seminary in Erbil. The visit was headed by the Vice-President of Academic Affairs, Asst. Prof. Dr. Iqbal Gorgis, along with Dr. Malik Kadifa and Mr. Fadi Odish.

The visit aimed to illustrate some construction activities to the students of the First and Second Stages of the architectural department at CUE.

Hence the visit helped the students link the theoretical information learned in the classrooms with the practical experience which is needed on any construction site.

The material used in the building’s construction was the stone used in most of the bearing walls of the Seminary. The lecturer explained the required steps in building the walls and installing stone as a finishing material (or facing) on the previously built wall of concrete blocks. All the information the students received is directly related to two modules, namely Building Materials (First year) and Building Technology (Second year).
