The School of Computing created an enjoyable event and received 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, we had approximately 350 students who attended our talks and approx. 800+ 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.
DCU hosts their Open Day this coming Friday and Saturday 19th and 20th November. The School of Computing is looking forward to meeting students from all schools around the country. We've lots to show you so don't waste time when you get here... come on over for some fun!
