Laksamana College of Business (LCB) welcomed the new intake and returning students for the college’s February and March intake at its Open Day featuring games, showcased live cooking demonstrations and activities highlighting the courses on offer.

Parents and students obtained more details on the courses, while some parents spoke with lecturers before deciding on which course to follow.

The event aimed to let the public view the college’s facilities and to provide an opportunity for aspiring young entrepreneurs to be part of the college’s incubation centre.

It also allowed parents to meet tutors and programme leaders to discuss and chart the learning path for the student, while inspiring students to achieve academic as well as personal development skills for the working environment.

Activities included Mindstorms Robot Inventor where visitors tried out the STEM-friendly LEGO prepared by LCB’s Training and Development Team, which sets where they can construct their own robots and learn computer coding.

At the Explore Robotics, visitors were able to get up close on the college’s Line Follower Robot, MeArm WiFi and more ITech showcases.

In the showcase at the Hospitality Management Department, visitors showed off their serving skills and had a napkin folding duel against a hospitality student and test their memory skills by setting up a table.

The Business Know-How (Incubation Centre) of the LCB Business Department together with LCB Incuvation, Training and Development held a mini exhibition of small business start-ups covering different aspects on Finance Management and Law.

Storyboards were illustrated with scheduled time for talks presented by business owners. There will be a session with Noice Café owner Firdaus Omar on February 14.
