DeBakey-Qatar students toured Qatar Science & Technology Park in Qatar Foundation. The tour included: observing the engines in the aviation park where the engineer gave a brief overview about the activities from GE and the machines; viewing the health care machines department where they could see ultra sound machines and the 3D Digital Mammogram; and they attended a conference about oil and gas extraction.
As a part of the engineering activity, the students were assigned to build a sailboat from a limited material that doesn’t sink for 10 seconds under wind conditions. Students found the field trip to be very interesting and educational. This field trip was an extension to their classroom lessons of the Physics and Intro to Engineering course.
