A RECORD 15,000 people attended ECU Joondalup’s open day on Sunday an increase of more than 60 per cent on last year.
There were market stalls, food trucks, a rock climbing wall, musical performances and ‘mind reading’ to see what course best suited.
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 “with 15,000 visiting ECU on just one day, our open days have now become a festival in their own right”.
ECU’s Mount Lawley campus will hold an open day on August 14 and the South West campus on August 28.
