The Student Retreat, held in the new Economics Building of UCT on the 16 of July, was a wonderful opportunity for CoMSIRU students, who range from countries across the African continent, to gain knowledge through interaction and information sharing as well as a sense of belonging for the new comers.
On Thursday 18 June 2015, members of various engineering organisations all stepped away from their normal work to take part in the fourth annual panel meeting of the Concrete Materials and Structural Integrity Research Unit (CoMSIRU).
The day started with four well-executed student presentations which struck a chord with the panel members, as they then had an opportunity to comment on the quality of the research that CoMSIRU students were undertaking.
Once again the CoMSIRU soccer team lead after the first leg of the annual two-legged soccer tournament against the fourth year students.
On Thursday the 27th of October 2014, the much anticipated CoMSIRU vs the Fourth Years Tournament began. A naturally shaky beginning due to the late start and uncertain weather conditions did not discourage CoMSIRU as they were able to overcome the first leg of the tournament against the fourth year students 5 – 1.
