Nairobi, Kenya -- Graduation at Strathmore University
Strathmore celebrated its tenth class of graduates on June 19. The university granted 104 diplomas, 643 licentiates, 136 master’s degrees, and 2 doctorates. Bernadette Musundi, president of the university Council, pointed out that 48% of these titles were awarded to women, a substantially higher percentage than in other universities in the country.
In his address, the rector, Prof. John Odhiambo, spoke about the university’s growing contacts with multinational and local corporations for research development. One example of this is the recently inaugurated @ilabAfrica, a center that carries out projects in conjunction with international technology companies.
