The Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering at the Silesian University of Technology held their Open Day
This created an opportunity to visit the Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering, find out more about the educational offer, and discover what researchers and students do there. On 3 June 2022, an Open Day was held at the Faculty.
Nearly 400 students visited the Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering at the Silesian University of Technology in Katowice during the Open Day. The event was combined with the 20th Student Scientific Session and Meeting with Employer.
- This day was very important for our Faculty, especially after the pandemic period when we couldn’t meet in person with secondary school students. Most importantly, we managed to combine the Open Day with a Meeting with the Employer. Therefore, candidates, but also our students chad an opportunity to visit the stands and become more familiar with the employers' offers from all transport branches: road, rail and air. Additionally, the 20th Student Scientific Session was also organized. It included presentations, a poster session for students and plenary speeches for our doctoral students - said Professor Piotr Folęga, Dean at the Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering.
During the Open Day, the student scientific associations operating at the Faculty presented, a Formula 1 car or an electric motorbike. The candidates could also visit laboratories where they work on modern hydrogen vehicles, mobile robots, glider and drone simulators or modelling of transport systems. - The key issue is that we had an opportunity to present our educational offer to secondary school students, present our student scientific associations, and demonstrate that we cooperate with a large number of companies from the transport sector in all areas of transport - emphasises the Dean of the Faculty.
During the event, the "Friend of the Faculty of Transport and Aviation Engineering" several distinctions were also awarded. - They were awarded to 10 companies cooperating with us in the area of education, research and joint projects - adds the Dean of the Faculty, Professor Piotr Folęga.
