The main features of the Open Day will be a Careers Exhibition and a series of information sessions, workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions of student work and laboratory visits that will take place in the various departments across the three campuses. Students will have the opportunity of meeting with lecturers who will answer any queries and current students will also be on hand to recount their own personal experiences and offer advice. The visiting public will also have the opportunity of seeing the extensive facilities available in CIT including extra-curricular activities which include "the best on-campus sports facilities in the country". Organised tours will also be available in order to allow students to get a feel for the CIT campuses.
