The Minister of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Honourable Dr Itah Kandjii-Murangi addressed the congregation on the second day of the Ceremony and congratulated the cohort of graduates.
The Vice-Chancellor, Dr Tjama Tjivikua, applauded the graduates for their hard work. “Many of these courageous and competitive men and women are married with full responsibilities for parenting, job demands and requirements, and other social responsibilities as good citizens. It is truly gratifying to see more and more progress in the qualified and competitive workforce,” Tjivikua remarked.
During the Ceremony, new qualifications were awarded, mainly in the Faculty of Computing and Informatics. These include the Bachelor of Computer Science (Communication Networks), the Bachelor of Computer Science (Software Development), and Bachelor of Informatics.
The University has continued to show its strengths in all its key performance areas and has upheld its mandate through its Strategic Plan, various structures, programmes and activities. However, the Vice-Chairperson of the Council, Goms Menétte, cautioned that there are still a number of critical issues to attend to, and high on the agenda is public funding and infrastructural development.
The next graduation ceremony is slated for 13 October 2017.
