PolyU successfully hosted its much-anticipated Info Day 2023 on 21 October, attracting a diverse range of secondary school students, parents, and individuals seeking master's degree programmes. The event aimed to provide a comprehensive overview of the academic programmes and featured a wide array of engaging activities that left attendees inspired and informed.
Our department offered a range of engaging activities, including an interactive booth where visitors had the opportunity to meet our programme leaders and teaching staff. It also showcased two Virtual Reality (VR) capstone projects created by our graduates. Visitors were able to immerse themselves in these VR demonstrations, experiencing the possible outcomes that can be achieved by studying our undergraduate programme.
To provide firsthand information about each programme's admission figures, requirements and distinctive features, COMP arranged individual sessions of Info Seminars for all BSc and MSc programmes, and nearly 400 participants attended our seminars.
This year, COMP organised in-depth guided tours for participants. Instead of rushing through the facilities, the tours began with a half-hour Game Design Workshop, which provided hands-on experience in designing games using Unity, a popular game development platform. Participants learned the fundamentals of game design while exploring their creativity. In addition, they had the opportunity to explore the department's state-of-the-art facilities, including the AI coffee system and a CAVE system showcasing an immersive project in collaboration with the Hong Kong Children’s Hospital. At the end of each tour, visitors enjoyed an exclusive chance to receive personalised consultation and gain guidance from our seasoned academic staff.
