December 16 at the Igor Sikorsky KPI an Open Day took place.
From the very morning future entrants and their parents filled the building number 1 of the National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute". They came to the university to learn about its faculties and institutes as well as the peculiarities of the upcoming admission campaign.
In the hall of the building faculties and departments of the KPI installed their information desks, so that visitors were able to come up and talk with heads and teachers of the departments and get answers to questions about training directions, practice and internships, employment opportunities for the chosen specialty, etc. They could also get different printed materials or even take a tour around the University and the State Polytechnic Museum.
