The graduation ceremony also saw the releasing of the 3rd batch of graduants from Computer Science Department (The Binary Family) of HTTC. The Binary Family is considered the youngest department of HTTC and over the past 3 years almost all of its student teachers have graduated with the lowest of a second class upper division.
With the graduation of teachers from this department comes great expectations as they are to groom younger minds in a field which is tremendously growing in Computer Technology and related fields. Of course, we know they are going to deliver on the expectations.
In overall, the graduation ceremony at UBa for these two establishments was a success. However, we look forward to the second phase of the graduation ceremony which will come up sometime in December this year for the other faculties.
