Faculty of Engineering and Computing Open Day 2011

Video Category: 

The School of Computing ran a successful and enjoyable event this year, with a strong turnout during the two Open Days. Friday was extremely busy with bus loads of students arriving and roaming the campus and Saturday there was a heavy presence of students and parents alike.

More specifically, our talks were full to capacity and we had to turn many students away. Approximately 450 students attended the talks and around 1,000+ students enjoyed the game activities in our labs. There was a great buzz around the School and everyone seemed enthusiastic and motivated in what we had to show them. Students particularly enjoyed the demo of CLARITY’s helicopter remote controlled by mobile phone and thanks to Redbrick and the Game Society for providing the fun each day including the busy game consoles.
