Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation, has successfully completed classes for the 2019-2020 academic year, with nearly 200 students in the 2020 class completing their final weeks through virtual educational platforms.
In order to comply with the social distancing rule imposed by Qatar to help contain the spread of COVID-19 and in line with the Qatar Foundation directives, HBKU postponed the graduation ceremony, which was originally scheduled to take place on 3 May 2020. The university continues to monitor the progress of the pandemic and will announce a new date for the graduation ceremony as soon as containment measures have been lifted.
Dr. Ahmad M. Hasnah, President of HBKU, said: “HBKU is committed to nurturing innovative and creative thinkers to become the driving force behind meaningful change in their respective fields and to advancing the development of a diverse and sustainable economy. I congratulate the Class of 2020 for their tremendous achievements and tenacity to complete their education despite the unique challenges of the COVID-19 containment measures. While we look forward to your graduation ceremony in due course, the present circumstances do not diminish the hard work you’ve put in to achieve this success.”
HBKU’s vice president of student affairs, the deans of the six colleges, and members of HBKU’s senior management, delivered congratulatory video messages recognising the outstanding achievements of graduate students.
Addressing the students, Dr. Emad El-Din Shahin, interim provost and dean of the College of Islamic Studies, said: “Congratulations. This is a great milestone in your life. You have persisted through hours of hard work, studying, and endless assignments. We are all very proud of you and wish you a very bright career ahead. You have accomplished a lot despite what you have gone through lately.”
Ms. Maryam al Mannai, vice president for student affairs at HBKU, said: “It’s been a long journey, and even though you’ve been challenging for the last few months, you’ve persevered and achieved your goals. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you this advice: remember the past, live in the present and look forward to the future. HBKU is proud to have been your home of knowledge for the last few years.”
HBKU nurtures high-caliber graduates who are equipped with theoretical knowledge and practical experience through a university’s multidisciplinary approach to education and learning. For information on the programs and admission requirements, please visit hbku.edu.qa
