Ming De Projects
From 2004 to 2009, many Engineering students were engaged in the Ming De Projects which turned dreams into reality deep in the mountainous area of Guangxi Province. The first Ming De Project involved the building of a primary school (明德樓) in Xiali Village while the second involved the building of a student dormitory (格物樓) for the Rong Shui Vocational Training School. Civil Engineering students were engaged in every aspect from interviewing local villagers to understand their needs, to carrying out site surveys, drawing up building plans, working out construction details, securing approval from mainland authorities, preparing tender documents, managing budget spending, and monitoring construction progress.
