Message from the President

Each year, convocation is looked upon as a highlight of the academic community. It is an honour for us to celebrate the achievements of our talented graduands during our convocation ceremonies. While this year’s celebration is different in delivery, the spirit and pride we convey remains the same.

Your convocation is the culmination of years of hard work, passion and commitment. We want to celebrate this achievement with you in person, once it is safe to do so, but for now, please join us in recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of the Class of 2020.
