On Wednesday, 29.11.2017 Civil Engineering Department second stage conducted a scientific trip to the students to Darbandikhan dam. The students seemed surprised by this huge hydraulic structure. During the visit, the students learned a lot about the dam , its appurtenant structures and the hydropower station. In addition, our students saw the impact of the earthquake on the dam and nearby buildings. On behalf of Ishik University-Sulaimani we would like to thank the directorate of Darbandikhan dam for their help.
