Minutes before nine o'clock in the morning, the comings and goings of people at Tecnun announced that this Saturday was not just any day at the School of Engineers in San Sebastian. Last Saturday, the Orientation and Open Doors workshop took place first at the Ibaeta campus and then at the Miramón , and many families came to see the School first hand, accompanied by their children.
The day started at 09.30 a.m. with a presentation of Tecnun to position by Director of Degrees and masters graduates, Mikel Arcelus. Then, while the students of high school program took the entrance exam to the School, their parents were waiting for them at auditorium following an interesting roundtable to position of graduates from different promotions and areas of Tecnun. Javier Oyón, Mechanical Engineer; Paula Urritukoetxea, student of Degree of design Industrial; Clara Molinuevo, graduate in Biomedical Engineering; and Iñigo Elorriaga, Telecommunications Engineer , were clarifying the questions that Arcelus was explaining to them. The fields covered by roundtable were mainly about Engineering and their professional opportunities. At the end of the session, the parents were able to ask their own questions to the graduates of Tecnun, which they answered to their satisfaction.
At 11 a.m., the group of visitors was divided in two. Some stayed at campus in Ibaeta to get to know the School's facilities in more detail, and others took a bus from Tecnun to Miramón. On the way, the Director of development, Iñigo Gutiérrez, explained in detail the particularities of the Biomedical Engineering laboratories, Automotive (Formula Student), etc, which were to be visited next. Once in Miramon, the group was divided into three subgroups so as not to be so large and began to visit the facilities until approximately 12:30 pm.
Afterwards, they returned to campus in Ibaeta to share a snack with teachers at cafeteria and encourage the attention face-to-face with parents and prospective students. It was a good time to discuss how they had done in the Physics and Mathematics tests that the students had taken in the early admission test . But also to discuss other subject aspects, such as information about accommodation, among others. Although, many of them had a subsequent quotation in the Colegio Mayor Ayete and in the Colegio Mayor Jaizkibel. The sun accompanied throughout the workshop so the workshop Open Doors was a success in every way. The new batch of prospective students is already on its way.
