Convocation

One of the major expectations of parents in their life is to witness their children’s graduation. The Annual General Convocation marks the culmination of the academic programs of the students who have worked hard over the past 3-5 years to achieve their main objective. Every year, the Annual Convocation is organized by the university in a glamorous manner inviting parents to witness the graduation of their children. This year, you will be able to see the majestic ceremony on May 29th and 30th at the university. The university has made every effort to make the event as memorable and comfortable as possible for parents and graduands. Nearly 3600 graduands will be conferred on basic and postgraduate degrees at this year’s convocation which will be held in four sessions. The event will be webcast over the university’s YouTube channel and Facebook pages. The university was able to clear the backlog created as a result of the global pandemic by holding two convocations last year.
