UOWD gala- A reason to celebrate

Tuesday, 18 November, 2008

A gala anniversary and graduate dinner marked the double celebration of UOWDs 15th year in the UAE and the academic success of winter 2008 UOWD graduates. The event held at the SAS Radisson on 13 November 2008 was attended by excited graduating students all geared up to receive their degrees at the Graduation ceremony two days later.

Also present were the Chancellor, University of Wollongong, Australia- Mr. Michael H. Codd and Dr. James Langridge, outgoing CEO of ITC and Vice Principal (Offshore operations) University of Wollongong, Australia. Speaking on the occasion Dr Langridge reminisced about the earlier years of the UOWD which was effectively followed by the UOWD President Professor Rob Whelan talking about the future vision of the University.

The event also marked the launch of a special UOWD publication, a coffee table book and a multimedia CD tracing the Universitys 15 years journey. The audience enjoyed the presentation at the event and took home the book as a present by the UOWD.
