NUST receives accolades in India

NUST has once again been singled out as an institution of excellence when three accolades were awarded to the institution and some of its staff at the Achievers Award Ceremony in India recently. The awards were presented during the Second International Conference on Information and Communication Technology for Competitive Strategies (ICTCS) 2016, which was preceded by a Doctoral Conference, co-organised by NUST’s Faculty of Computing and Informatics and the Indian government.

NUST Vice-Chancellor, Tjama Tjivikua, received recognition for the 2015 Best Contribution in Science and Technology, the Dean of the Faculty of Computing and Informatics, Dr Anicia Peters, scooped the 2015 Best Contribution in Computer Science. Also, NUST received an Award of Appreciation for support in the successful organisation of ICTCS 2016, thanks to the leadership of Prof Singh Jat. Peters, who travelled to India to receive the awards, said the Faculty of Computing and Informatics benefits tremendously from its relationship with the Indian government, universities and professional bodies such as the Computer Society of India. “The awards are a testimony of the collective achievements of NUST and this external recognition affords us so much more credibility,” she said.

The awards were based on a global nomination process and Tjivikua was particularly honoured for his achievements in promoting Science and Technology in a developing country, with special emphasis on his contribution to the transformation of Polytechnic of Namibia.

The NUST delegation visited two Indian government research centres and presented papers in the technical sessions of the Doctoral Conference. The delegation also looked at the possibility of finding viable collaborations for the exchange of expertise on staff and student levels. The ICTCS 2016 served as a platform to target state-of-the-art as well as emerging topics pertaining to ICT and effective strategies for its implementation for Engineering and Managerial applications.
