On 14 June 2019, five alumni from the class of 2006 in “Mechanical Engineering” came back to the University of Luxembourg. The visit was organised by Prof. Stefan Maas and Joël Da Cruz Antunes in order to connect former students with the current ones, in an informal atmosphere.

The visit started with a presentation of Joël Da Cruz Antunes, Master student (Master en Sciences de l’Ingénieur - Efficacité Énergétique et Économique), about Belval campus as well as the different study programmes that are currently offered in engineering sciences at the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC). “The main objective of this presentation was to illustrate to the alumni how the academic life, as an engineering student, now look like at the University. This was also a nice occasion to highlight our modern infrastructures that we have today, on Belval campus”, explains Joël.

Then, the attendees took part in a guided tour of the campus, where they had the opportunity to discover some classes, student areas, and the environment that is now part of the students’ life.

The visit ended with a magnificent view over the University, which was enjoyed from the top of the blast furnace. This was also the occasion for former students to discuss and share their experiences with current students.

Some alumni testimonials after the visit:

Daniel Kroemmer (CFL): “The former University in 2006 is no longer comparable to the University nowadays. It is interesting to see how history has evolved in the right direction over the years and how a link has been established between the industrial and academic sides. I note a very positive evaluation of the various study conditions offered by the University.”

Olivier Kayser (Luxembourg Army): “The current University is located in a very modern and impressive campus. All the services to support students such as canteens and cafeterias, the library (Luxembourg Learning Center) and classrooms are innovative and attractive above all.”

Pierre Glesener (Municipal official, Dudelange): “The city of Belval seduces with its residential district and industrial complex, of which the blast furnace is the centre of attraction. All the facilities provided for the students are great, but there is one outstanding structure, the Luxembourg Learning Center. This building is magnificent, creative and of high quality, comparable to the great architecture of Copenhagen or Oslo. The new Belval campus is not comparable to our Kirchberg campus in 2006. This university is inspiring!”
