Bell chimes at Aarhus School of Engineering
Once again, the time for clock chiming at Aarhus School of Engineering has come. Today, Monday, June 12 at 09.00, the summer's first graduate could ring the ship's bell and celebrate his title as engineer. A tradition that has taken place every year since the 1960s.
Mads Kristian Wrang Rasmussen, the first graduate, achieved the first 12 in the final bachelor's degree at Aarhus School of Engineering. It gave him the right, as the first graduate of the year, to ring the traditional bell that hangs on the balcony outside the Navitas canteen.
Mads Kristian, who spent his bachelor internship on one of Royal Artic Line's ships on route between Denmark and Greenland, has not yet secured his first job in the profession. He’s looking for positions at shipping companies as well as on land as there are many opportunities.
Mads Kristian wrote a project about the new ballast water convention, which will go into force on September 8 this year. During the internship, he studied how Royal Artic Line could comply with the new convention.
Every bell chime from Navitas building at the port of Aarhus today marks the closure of a new engineer. In the coming weeks, the bell will chime diligently when all 96 engineer students go to the bachelor exam.
The final exam will take place on June 26, and the actual graduation will take place in Aarhus Cathedral on Friday June 30 at 2 pm.
