On an unseasonably hot Saturday, the 12th of April 2014, the University of Cape Town held its annual Open Day. High school learners, parents, teachers and prospective students flocked to upper campus in their hundreds, eager to visit the departments in which they wanted to study.
Open Day is the ideal opportunity for potential applicants to get a better idea of what type of work graduates from the degree programmes are prepared for and with what they are likely to be involved. Visitors can use this occasion to ask specific questions about the degrees available and the types of courses offered, and also more general questions, such as what it is like to be a student at UCT.
The Radar Remote Sensing Group (RRSG) as well as the other research groups in the engineering department had numerous excellent exhibits, in the form of running videos, live equipment demos, prototyped systems, interesting simulations, as well as colourful posters about ongoing projects.
Postgraduate students and some of the academic staff who teach the courses and run research projects were available to respond to questions and give advice concerning the various degree programme offered by the department.
