Norton sends students to Bangkok

At school, students often get given documentary theory study and explanation from their lecturers, and from their own research in the library and on the internet. But these are often only knowledge-based, and have few practical applications.

The phrase “study at school but practise in society” is a proverb that many educational institutions have paid attention to, and Phnom Penh’s Norton University has now come up with a way to lead its students to new experiences, in line with social development, to help the country progress.

Dr Lim Soktai, a dean of Engineering and Civil Construction of Norton University, said he is leading a group of 126 engineering and urbanization and construction students to Bangkok for a five-day field study trip

Lim Soktai told the Post  that he “is very happy for the school board to organize the field schooling tour to Thailand for the students of engineering and urbanization and construction engineering.”

He said the major aims for the field study are to broaden ties and cooperation among university partners in Thailand like Rangsit University and Chulalongkorn University, as well as to provide students with opportunity to participate an international show for exposure to new technologies and modern materials for use in engineering and the civil construction sector.

Sreath Mom Sophea, director of SOPHIYA Travel & Tours, said her company is hounoured have the chance to organize the trip to Thailand, after trips to Malaysia and Singapore in 2010.

She claimed, “I expect the the field study trip to be able to provide a lot of knowledge to students learning skills because there, they will have seen the progressiveness and the exibition of high and new technologies.”
