16th Graduation - 2014
17th Graduation Ceremony: 16thOctober 2015
|After Graduation, the first question you usually as is, where do I find a job? You rarely ask the critical question of what you really want to do, and what you are passionate about.
Ndejje University is a fully fledged University with a charter granted in 2009 which certifies its competence to deliver quality education.
There are three cardinal challenges to a dignified standard of living namely; ignorance, diseases and poverty. One of the main root causes of diseases and poverty is actually ignorance. Knowledge and skills, therefore, is critical to finding solutions to the other two – diseases and poverty.
One educationist defined education as the ‘progressive discovery of our ignorance’ and I wish to add that it is also the acquisition knowledge, skills and values that enable us to boldly meet the daunting challenges of development. I wish to focus on the usage of knowledge and skills for the creation of wealth through the entrepreneurship.
|The biggest asset in the education you have received is the empowerment to fit in any situation and the ability to make informed decisions without losing your values.
You should know from today that the world is not going to employ your Degree or Diploma Certificate, it is going to employ you, in person, depending on what you can do.
You should also note that the biggest asset in the education you have received is the empowerment to fit in any situation and the ability to make informed decisions without losing your values. You are now part of Uganda’s badly needed human capital that we shall rely on to transform this country towards realising the Uganda Vision 2040 “A Transformed Society from a Peasant to a Modern and Prosperous Country within thirty (30) years”. For this dream to become a reality, we shall count on you to make the right decisions as you start your careers be it in the private or public sector. You are part of the drive to improve the quality of the community where you live and the whole country.
|I am happy to reaffirm that ever since Ndejje University got its Charter in 2009 from the Government of Uganda, all its programmes are accredited.
In addition to accreditation, the programmes are also professionalized in the sense that students are exposed to practical training as well as being exposed to Extra-Mural Studies. Hence our theme: “Professionalization for National Development”.
In order to boost teaching and research in Engineering and Science, the University has, through international collaboration, received five experts in Renewable Energy, Mathematics and ICT, Electrical Engineering (Robotics), Chemical Engineering and Sports Science. One of our members of staff in the Department of Civil Engineering, Dr. Philip Nyenje defended his PhD in Water Resources Management at the UNESCO Water Education Institute, Delft, Netherlands on 15th September 2014. Another one Mr. Kenan Okurut will complete his PhD in Public Health Engineering before the end of the year.
