Are you ready for your next IACES moment?
We are pleased to announce the second most significant
International Association of Civil Engineering Students
event in 2018: the Mid-Term Meeting.
Visit our delightful city, Budapest, also known as the Queen of the Danube. Budapest is the capital of Hungary, cited as the most beautiful, the most innovative and the most livable city of Central and Eastern Europe. The central part of the city along with Danube River is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Budapest is filled with history, it is built over Aquincum, Roman capital of Lower Pannonia. It was one of the centers of renaissance culture, and after the 150 years of Ottoman rule, the city entered of a prosperous age as the co-capital of Austro-Hungarian Empire and the home of many technological, cultural and political revolutions. After the communist era, the city quickly became the second fastest-developing urban economy and the leader of commerce and finance, media and art, research and technology in Central Europe.
Budapest is under a significant transformation and you will have an opportunity to look into this process. We will visit several construction sites from a building of a skyscraper to a reconstruction of a stadium. Furthermore, we will go down in the Budapest subway system after knock-off time.
One of main events of our organisation is the Zielinski Szilárd Conference. It is held every year, in 2018 for the seventh time. On the one-day long conference you can hear lots of presentations about new researches and technologies, interesting topics and projects in civil engineering. It has a section dedicated to student projects, where you can apply with your presentation.
As in every Mid-Term Meeting the essential General Assembly of Representatives (GAR) is scheduled. Afterwards we will have a formal dinner. You will have many chance to build professional relationships.
We will have a tour visiting many notable monuments in Pest, including Hungarian Parliament, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes' Square, Nyugati Railway Station built by the Eiffel and the second-oldest metro line in the world, the Millennium Underground Railway. We will walk through the Széchenyi Chain Bridge to Buda and visiting Buda Castle, Matthias Church and the Liberty Statue. Not to mention the ship cruise on Danube.
The MTM is in May, and speaking of May, it's time for festivals like the International Workers' Day or May Day, which is taken serious in every ex-communist country. Join us to a lightsome Summering to enjoy the first winds of summer in the Buda mountains. We are going to ensure you a recreational program for every night: the unskippable International Night, a tour to Budapest's nightlife including famous ruin pubs and experience of a true university party.
We are waiting you with an interesting challenge for all civil engineers. We guarantee that you will have fun and you will have something that you can bring home! ;)
