NUST 2019 Spring Graduation Ceremony gets face-lift

Over 400 students graduated from NUST last week at a Ceremony that was revamped and made bigger and better. The event was not only a celebration for the graduates, but it served as an inspirational occasion, as they embark on a new chapter of their lives.

From mobile phones being permitted in the venue, to live streaming the event on various social media platforms, the event offered many new features. Various stakeholders were also given the opportunity to congratulate the graduates in the media.

Additionally, various youthful NUST alumni gave motivational speeches ahead of the official proceedings.

Governor motivates the youth
The Governor of the Bank of Namibia, Mr Iipumbu Shiimi, addressed the gathering. His speech, which zeroed-in on his childhood experiences, to the importance of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, was received with admiration from all quarters.

Speaking about how young people should prepare themselves for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, he said: “The youth should work hard to establish their own digital companies which will create value and serve the world population. The youth should also develop products and services that can be sold on existing platforms such as Alibaba, Amazon etc. This way you are not limited to the small Namibian market as you have access to the global market.”

Minister gives reassurance
The Minister of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Hon Dr Itah Kandjii-Murangi, delivered the keynote address. “I am well aware that whilst today is indeed joyous occasion, many of you are anxious. Anxious about what the future holds. It takes conscious efforts to be optimistic at times of uncertainty, but I want to reassure you that the Namibian Government is not oblivious to the challenges many of our people are facing. Government has invested heavily in creating employment opportunities for young people in efforts to address the socio-economic challenges faced by the country. It is a gradual process.”
