UOM Engineering Tower
Welcome to the nearly brand new building of the University Of Mauritius…
I invite you on a small tour of this latest bijou of the campus.
Doing a class there is nearly nightmare, you will know why…
I think most of the students prefer to attend a lecture in those old buildings rather than in this tower, facing the “Cyber-City”
- 8 levels,
- 2 lifts,
- 1 normal staircase + 1 emergency staircase,
- 1 control room with a computer ( i still wonder if the guys know what to do with this computer!)
- lots of classrooms (which ” laisse a desirer!”)
And thats the purpose of this post…
Lets talk about those classes!
- The building is designed as such, there is no flow of air inside!!!
Concentrating on a lecture becomes rather impossible specially in this hot climate!
There are fans, lot of them (about 4 ) per class…But out of these, only one works! And the designers have placed the fans as such that the fan will give good air only in 10-20% of the area its supposed to cover!
- The White Board!
Impossible to read whats written on the board or what is projected on it due to the large amount of glare.
- No Proper Curtains!
We are fortunate i think, those ‘curtains’ we have are 5-Stars!
The curtains are simply white sheet of papers, stuck on the windows, wise thing to do!
- What a nice binwe have !
- No Proper Lecturer’s table!
There is simply no table made for the lecturer!
Imagine when the lecturer has to use a laptop n projector!
He/She has to do with a normal student table + Chair!
- Notice Board
Unlike in other buildings, the engineering tower has only 1 notice board found on the floor ground.
So to pass messages, a paper is simply stuck in front of the class!
And the last one? U enjoyed the atmosphere?
