Our Fourth Open Day of 2014

Published: 22 August 2014

Our Open Day, held on 16 August attracted over 100 visitors which included 30 science stream students from English College, one of the top local schools in Johor Bahru. 61 per cent of visitors were interested in our MEng Mechanical Engineering programme, 13 per cent in our MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) programme, 16 per cent in our Foundation Programme* and 10 per cent in our MEng Aeronautics and Astronautics* programme. *These programmes are subject to MQA approval.

Visitors were organised into two groups, each attending talks, laboratory tours, a bus tour and an International Student Village tour.   The visitors watched a student testimonial video which is available on our facebook site. 

A workshop was introduced for students interested in studying electrical and electronic engineering.  Students were given the opportunity to solder LEDs onto a small circuit board and were then shown how our in-house Il-Matto board, solders LEDs to produce a simple message fan.  Students interested in studying mechanical engineering received a demonstration of our current students’ projects.  They also received instruction on how to use drawings to manufacture an engineering artefact, using the quadcopter structure.  One of our current students then shared her experience of working on the quadcopter project. 

Our next Open Day is on 13 September 2014 and we look forward to welcoming you then.
