On the commencement of the coronavirus pandemic, DUT decided to host its graduation ceremonies online, in order to abide by the COVID-19 regulations and to ensure the safety of the DUT community. We remain cautious since there are expert predictions that the fourth wave of the pandemic could be imminent. Therefore, we urge all of our graduates to celebrate their success safely and with the relevant COVID-19 protocols in mind. The University congratulates all DUT graduates and we are extremely proud of their achievements.
