The LIT Open House event will highlight the 30 academic degree programs offered at LIT, demonstrating their real-world focus and giving visitors an opportunity to try their hand at various stations to learn more about the technologies of tomorrow. Our academic advisors will be on-hand to talk about our programs as well as about studying at the JKU. You can also take part in a guided tour of the JKU campus to learn more about the university.  In between there are plenty of opportunities to chill out, eat, meet new people, and get a taste of student and campus life.


In order to make sure no questions remained unanswered, we have on-site stands featuring:

  • Academic advising counselors to learn about the various academic degree programs
  • Representatives to learn about scholarships and grants
  • Representatives from the Admissions Office
  • Representatives from some of the student dorms
  • Staff from the Office of Studies Information and Academic Advising Services


In all, there will be over 25 hands-on stations at LIT to explore new topics and conduct experiments. Watch a coffee-pouring robot in action, an unmanned bicycle without training wheels, or experiment with or without flames. Or build your own drone!
