Alumni Engagement Programme to Begin this Month!

This programme will allow each lecturer, every semester, to expose their students to at least ONE graduate in the field who can share work experience, trends or cutting edge discoveries in the field, ways to overcome challenges, articles/websites to follow or useful organizations to join and more. This Alumni Relations Engagement programme supports the Triple A Strategic Plan, as Faculty Deans have been asked to expose students to the world of work and that therefore the AEP fits into this larger initiative.
