Five NUST students depart to Switzerland

Five NUST students from various Faculties departed on 01 May 2021 to participate in the B360 Education Partnerships, which afforded them the opportunity to undertake industry internships at companies based in Switzerland.

In March 2020, Anthens Liyali from the Faculty of Computing and Informatics; Ernestine Nkotongo from the Faculty of Management Sciences; Paulus Awala from the Faculty of Engineering; and Pena Nelumbu and Nancy Mukubesa from the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences, were selected for the B360 Internship Programme. However, they were not able to undertake their internships last year due to the impact of COVID-19.  Front) left to right: Pena Nelumbu (student); Dr Erling Kavita, Acting Special Advisor to the Vice-Chancellor; Dr Erold Naomab, NUST Vice-Chancellor; and Nancy Mukubesa (student). (Back) left to right: Anthens Liyali (student), Ernestine Nkotongo (student), Paulus Awala (student).

The NUST Vice-Chancellor, Dr Erold Naomab, encouraged the students to work hard during their time in Switzerland, and to open up opportunities for others.

“Remember that you are ambassadors of NUST, Namibia, and Africa,” Dr Naomab advised the students after bidding them a safe journey.

Liyali will spend his internship with a Swiss financial services provider, Bob Finance AG; Nkotongo will be placed with Ferrum AG; and Awala will intern at Buchi AG. Nelumbu will carry out her internship at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), and Mukubesa will be working at Zweifel Pomy Chips.

Thus far, 90 NUST students have benefited from the B360 Education Partnerships established in 2009. The Swiss-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) contributes to skills and knowledge transfer and capacity development.
