Approximately 8,000 prospective students, their parents and Guidance Counsellors attended NUI Galway’s Undergraduate Open Days on October 2nd and October 3rd 2015. As part of the event the academic staff and Student Ambassadors of the Discipline of Information Technology chatted with the students and answered questions about what it is like studying Computer Science & Information Technology.  Staff also provided Introductory Talks throughout the day on the GY350 programme, BSc (Honours) in Computer Science & Information, which helped provide an insight into careers and job prospects for IT graduates. Large numbers also attended the IT Interactive Zone where they were challenged to a Connect 4 game with a robot, had an opportunity to experience and step inside a virtual world using an Oculus Rift headset and also a chance to see a variety of drone demos. The next Open Day will talk place on Saturday April 22nd 2016 and we take this opportunity to invite you to come along and meet and chat to us about Computer Science and Information Technology and visit our IT Interactive Zone.
