The hybrid PolyU Undergraduate Info Day 2022 ended on 8 October, attracting more than 26,000 visitors to participate in this annual highlight at the PolyU campus and online platform. This year, COMP arranged interactive booth activities and consultation sessions, information seminars and laboratory tours with live demonstrations. The event was the first full-scale physical Info Day after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to travel restrictions, both the booth consultation and information seminar supported an online option. International students could enjoy equal opportunities to learn about our undergraduate programmes and get advice from our academic staff. At the physical booth, visitors had chance to meet and talk with our staff and students in person and taste Metaverse in the virtual treasure hunt activities.
The information seminars covered the features of our BSc Scheme in Computing and AI, general admission requirements and the career path after graduation, which attracted more than 400 students and parents to attend. To enable visitors a peek inside the research and teaching facilities of COMP, guided laboratory tours at our Game Lab were arranged. More than 260 visitors joined the tours and experienced the Mixed Reality applications designed by our students.
PolyU Undergraduate Info Day is an annual event which provides an excellent platform for prospective students, their parents and the public to obtain the most up-to-date information on a wide range of academic programmes and to gain valuable tips about planning for university life.
