Adopt a School - Open Day

Posted on March 07, 2022

The EBIT "Adopt a School" open day at the Edward Phathudi Comprehensive School in Atteridgeville in March 2022 was centered around introducing the EBIT faculty, the different departments, and the degrees they offer.  The Department of Construction Economics was delighted to be part of this initiative as it offered us the opportunity to get our degrees and name known to the learners as a degree of first choice. 

The learners were very intrigued by the Construction Economics degrees on offer, particularly because it was the first time some of them heard about degrees such as quantity surveying, construction management and real estate.  The general interest among some of the girl learners was the prevalence of females in construction and overall the feedback was positive.

The educators were helpful with setting up and getting the EBIT team ready to present making use of their smart TV technology. It was high spirits and positive energy all around. The “Adopt a School” project is the first of many and we look forward to the prospect of admitting first-year students from this school in the near future.
