- We know this is appreciated and an opportunity for high school students to try university environment while, in one day, get an idea of what it is like to study at LTU, says Susanne Ljunghager, administrator for student recruitment at Luleå University of Technology.
High school students had the opportunity to meet students, teachers and researchers, participate in activities and listen to various lectures in many different areas.
At least 1,500 high school students from schools in Norrbotten and Skellefteå visited the LTU during "A Day at the LTU"
Results of interesting and inspiring student projects is some of what they could see, for example, the small car Skilzi, designed by students at the university, who participated in the European edition of the student competition Shell Eco Marathon. Another example is the project SOLAR led by aerospace engineer students and involves finding a solution on how to solder in the vacuum of space.
Inspiring lectures is another plank in which high school students, for example, were told about how to motivate yourself, how it is to be an exchange student and why technology and economics is a superb combination. Other examples of computer development paradoxes and attributmakarutbilding that can give a ticket to the Hollywood film industry. This and much more was offered lots of high school students from the county when they visited Luleå University of Technology on Tuesday.
