Beihang held its annual University Open Day online this year on July 16, considering the situation of epidemic prevention and control.
The “cloud” event consisted of the live streaming by Guangming Daily, a virtual reality visit to the campus with a panoramic view, a dialogue with the staff responsible for undergraduate admission, an introduction to schools and a Q&A session by the admission groups for each province. It began at 9 a.m. and ended at 3 p.m.
In 2020 Beihang continues to admit students based on their interest and aptitude in general disciplines and its admission plan is basically the same as that in 2019.
Leaders from the Office of Admission and Career Development and the Office of Academic Affairs introduced the university and its admission policy, talent cultivation and student development
During the live streaming, a visit was paid to Beijing Air and Space Museum, one of the landmarks of Beihang
Teachers introduced schools and majors to the audience
The event enabled high school graduates and their family members know more about the requirements, research orientation and development prospect of each major in the online live streaming rooms of different schools. They could also have their questions answered through phone calls and QQ chats with the staff from the Office of Admission and Career Development, schools and admission groups.
The live streaming of this event was watched over 2.45 million times on nine platforms, marking a good start of the admission and publicity work after the 2020 national college entrance exam. As a follow-up, Beihang’s admission groups will go to each province to provide face-to-face admission consultation for the examinees.
