Abuja Varsity produces 25 PhDs, 432 Master graduates in 10 yrs

A private, pan-African research university in Abuja, the African University of Science and Technology, AUST, has graduated over 25 PhDs and over 400 Masters degree holders in its first decade of existence.

Also, alumni of the institution have produced high-level research findings in notable areas, including the treatment and control of cancer, renewable energy and the development of affordable alternative building materials.

Speaking on the highlights of the institution’s first decade, President of AUST, Professor Kingston Nyamapfene said: “It is reassuring that AUST is being true to its mission because most AUST graduates find employment before or soon after graduation and, in particular, that in many cases, it was the nature and quality of their research work that prospective employers found attractive.”

Alumni of the institution have also earned honours for their contributions and exploits in other areas.
