PAUWES Graduation Ceremony Class 2019
The beautiful and historical city of Tlemcen have experienced the graduation ceremony of the fourth cohort of students of the Pan African University Institute for Water and Energy Sciences Including Climate Change (PAUWES). In this cohort, 66 students from 26 countries with 40% of gender have all received scholarships from PAU in 2017 and thus awarded the MSc.
The Pan-African University is a dynamic institution in perpetual pursuit of excellence, thus becoming a world class and recognized Institution in Higher Education, six years only after its programs launching. Time has proven it! One cannot ignore the two PAUWES students who won the first International prize of the Schneider Electric Go Green City in Atlanta, in November 2018 where three thousand universities competed. One cannot ignore that among 1,364 graduate students from 101 different nationalities registered to take part in the Geneva Challenge 2019: Challenges of Global Health, five students of PAUWES were declared in October 2nd of 2019 as third finalists of the Geneva-challenge 2019 edition. One cannot ignore neither the two PAUWES students who were named the Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 by the Tony ELUMELU Foundation. Last but not least, one cannot ignore the Jua Jamii team from PAUWES who were chosen among so many teams within Africa, to be part of the 20 finalists and who competed in the solar Decathlon, building the first transportable house running with renewable energy by recycling the containers. All these students did a tremendous job and deserved well their graduation on October 6th, 2019.
