The Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the University Of Catania has hosted a delegation of students and teachers from the University of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia as part of the activities of the European project Marine Coastal and Delta Sustainability for Southeast Asia (Mare).

The three-year project aims to reform the university educational offer on the topics of sustainable and integrated management of coastal areas in Vietnam and Malaysia, according to the objectives of Capacity Building of non-EU countries of the Erasmus + Program.

Among the activities and collaborations between the various project partners, a series of short-term mobility of teachers and students from and to Asian countries is foreseen. Kuala Lumpur students, in particular, will develop their degree theses on the topics of planning and management of coastal areas and maritime hydraulics during their visit to Dicar.

The students’ work will be supervised by teachers Daniele La Rosa (project coordinator) and Pietro Scandura from Dicar.
