Dr Tim Wilkinson has just returned from a two week visit to Chaoyang University of Technology just near the city of Taichung in Taiwan.

The University of Sydney and CYUT have recently signed a memorandum of understanding concerning a joint Masters program, in which CYUT students can study at USyd for 1 year during their masters course.

During the visit, Dr Wilkinson saw many of the excellent research facilities in the Department of Construction Engineering, and identified some potential research topics for students undertaking the joint masters program.

A day long symposium hosted by CYUT on Accreditation of Engineering Undergraduate Education Programs was carried out, with two seminars prsented by Prof Andrew Downing, Imeediate Past President of Engineers Australia.

The visit of Dr Wilkinson follows up the visit of key CYUT staff to the Department of Civil Engineering in September 2005.
