He said: “We decided that the selection of most of the candidate was based on their earlier academic endeavours, especially their earlier degrees. More importantly, it was based on the specific proposals and statement of purposes that they presented.

“We looked at which of those proposals have the potentials to address real-life changes, not only in our industry but in the country at large. The point is that at the level of PhD, we are not just interested in creating skills and competencies; we are particular in the projects, the potentials of the research to existing challenges.
