Workshop with SOS Méditerranée

On Friday, February 3rd, Prof. Bendul and students from the “Production & Technology Management” class (part of the Industrial Engineering & Management Bachlor Program) held a workshop with volunteers from SOS Méditerranée, an european non-governmental organization that operates the search & rescue (SAR) ship Aquarius in the Mediterranean sea to save the lives of refugees in distress at sea.

In small groups, students and volunteers discussed a wide range of topics of concern for the organization, including fund-raising, ship-equipment, water surveillance, etc.. Over the next three months, the students will work on these topics as a class project and put their knowledge to good use.
