TAMK students in Shanghai World Expo
Five students of Mechanical and Production Engineering, who are specialising in Industrial Engineering and Management, travel to work in the Shanghai World Expo. The World Expo will be open from the 1st of May until the 31st of October 2010.
The students are Tuomas Oikkonen, Tuomo Liukku, Jarno Lammenaho, Ville-Veikko Virolainen and Rami Iskanius.
The students will work in building services engineering repair and maintenance tasks in the Finnish Pavilion. These include the maintenance and night duties regarding the building’s security devices, communication devices, waste management and logistics.
The Expo area is five kilometres long, and about 100 million visitors are expected to visit the Expo, so there is a lot to do.
”It seems like a big challenge to go, but the biggest challenges are also the most important ones, careerwise. The future usually favours the bold. When thinking about our futures, we feel this opportunity opens up a lot of new doors in the working life, and elsewhere. The atmosphere in the team is really high and enthusiastic”, commented Iskanius.
The students were selected for the World Expo through a vast application process, and the final interviews for the applicants were carried out by the Finnish Commissioner General for Expo 2010 Pertti Huitu.
