Qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion

Dr Bader Al-Essa, Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion said, “The role of the pri­vate sec­tor is com­pleted by sup­port­ing the gov­ern­ment’s ef­forts and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions ef­forts to sup­port the mar­kets needs and to en­sure the qual­ity of the ed­u­ca­tion in Kuwait. More­over, I would like to thank the Gulf Univer­sity for Science and Tech­nol­ogy, and the par­ents on all their ef­forts”.

This cer­e­mony marks the univer­sity’s largest grad­u­at­ing class with 737 grad­u­ates, ready to em­bark on the next chap­ter of their lives.

Pro­fes­sor Salem Al-Tuhaih, GUST Chair­man of the Board of Trus­tees said, “Coun­tries al­ways rely on de­vel­op­ing their ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and re­search cen­ters to solve any prob­lems that might oc­cur in the fu­ture, and de­vel­op­ing so­lu­tions is the key fac­tor for any progress, so­cially, tech­ni­cally and eco­nom­i­cally. There­fore, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions must be given suf­fi­cient free­dom in or­der to mon­i­tor their per­for­mance and qual­ity con­trol through lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tions. Gulf Univer­sity for Science and Tech­nol­ogy is offering pre­mium qual­ity, and the Univer­sity has ac­cred­i­ta­tion and af­fil­i­a­tions with elite uni­ver­si­ties around the world, and we are al­ways ea­ger to have grad­u­ates with the high­est qual­ity in aca­demic ed­u­ca­tion”.

Knowl­edge and con­fi­dence With dis­tinc­tive, in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­cred­ited pro­grams, GUST equips its grad­u­ates with knowl­edge and con­fi­dence to face any ob­sta­cles in­clud­ing a de­gree that is rec­og­nized world­wide.

Pro­fes­sor Don­ald Bates, GUST’s Pres­i­dent said, “To­day you have reached a mile­stone in life’s jour­ney. I want to help you con­tinue on this suc­cess­ful jour­ney by en­cour­ag­ing you to have a vi­sion of a bet­ter Kuwait, a bet­ter world, and know that as you travel to ful­fill that vi­sion, the jour­ney is as im­por­tant as the des­ti­na­tion. Fur­ther­more, I wish for you, a lov­ing fam­ily, many friends and a jour­ney that in­cludes get­ting in the game of life, hard work, over­com­ing fear, learn­ing from your fail­ures, break­ing the rules, and avoid­ing the naysay­ers be­cause your mis­sion is to change Kuwait.

The night ended with a grand dis­play of fire­works, and cus­tom­ized photo booths were avail­able for stu­dents to cap­ture th­ese joy­ous mo­ments with their fam­i­lies and friends.
