The Department of Computing and Information Technology (CIT) which is under the Faculty of Applied Sciences at the Polytechnic has awarded students who have successfully completed Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas under the City and Guilds System Support programs.

The graduation ceremony took place at the ICT/ODL Auditorium where it was presided over by the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Dr Christabel Kambala.

13 have graduated with Diplomas while 19 have graduated with Advanced Diplomas.

Speaking during the ceremony, Dr Amelia Taylor, gave an overview of the background of the City and Guilds program which she said originated from the Royal family of England.

“After pursuing this course, you should be proud that you are part of the team of experts engaged in maintaining the system software. Systems fail when they are not being properly maintained by experts, hence causes organizations to spend more money in replacing equipment,” Taylor said.

In her remarks, Dr Christabel Kambala encouraged the graduates to further their education and obtain higher qualifications on top of what they have achieved now.

“You have just started your journey where you may wish to upgrade to degrees or even higher qualifications, this is not a mean achievement because you have endured hard work, sleepless nights and anxiety” Dr Kambala said.

She further urged the students to put into practice all the knowledge and skills they have acquired citing that their program is very unique. The world today is being run by computers, so they need to be engaged in innovations and advance themselves in computer technology.
