Invitation to Graduation Ceremony

Attending the graduation ceremony is the right of graduates and the responsibility of any educational institution.

It is an integral part of the university education process and the collective educational consciousness of our peers. It is the foundation of the pillar /ladder of success. Graduation is not only throwing your/ their caps in the air, wearing academic gowns, or taking photos but so much more.

It is the celebration of the hard work, dedication, morale, and discipline which leads to such an auspicious event. Our goal is to continue the tradition in the grandest and most surreal way possible for our graduates
