A record 15,000 people flocked to Joondalup for Edith Cowan University’s Open Day on Sunday 17 July, an increase of more than 60 per cent on 2015.
The Joondalup Campus came alive for the day with market stalls, food trucks, a rock climbing wall and musical performances.
Some visitors also volunteered for mind reading to see what course best suited them. There was also the chance try out the 180 degree booth to capture a Matrix-style ‘bullet time’ 3D picture.
As well as live demonstrations and talks for existing courses, lecturers were on hand to provide information about ECU’s new offerings for 2017 including the Bachelor of Engineering (Petroleum Engineering) Honours, Master of Science (Assisted Reproductive Technology) and Master of Nursing (Graduate Entry).
ECU Vice-Chancellor Professor Steve Chapman said he was delighted with the record turnout.
“With 15,000 visiting ECU on just one day, our Open Days have now become a festival in their own right.
“We of course continue to provide prospective students with important course and career information, but we also enjoy welcoming the entire community to the Joondalup Campus to check out the free attractions, explore our facilities and meet our staff.”
ECU’s Mount Lawley Campus will hold an Open Day on 14 August and South West Campus on Sunday 28 August.
