A total of 650 students graduated at the PNG University of Technology’s 50th Graduation ceremony on Friday, 6 April 2018.
     Another milestone achieved during the same week was the launching of the PNGUOT Alumni Association on Thursday, 5 April 2018.
Acting Vice Chancellor, Dr. Ora Renagi expressed in a media conference that the university has graduated about 20, 000 graduates over the last 50 years and will need their assistance through networking and partnership to develop the university.
     Minister for National Planning and Member for Yangoru-Saussia, Hon. Richard Maru OBE, who is also an Alumni of the University, officially launched the Alumni Association.
     The Graduation theme was “Applying Transformative Technology towards Responsible and Sustainable Development".
     This year’s graduating cohort was a little less than 2016 (978) and 2017 (967) because the affiliated Unitech Nursing College had a separate graduation ceremony at the end of last year.
     The Post Graduate School which is the biggest in the country had 37 graduates graduating with 2 PhDs, 3 Master of Philosophy, 9 Master of Science, 4 Master of Communication Studies, 5 Executive Master of Business Administration, 1 Master of Technology and 13 Post Graduate Certificates in Teaching.
