Principal of the Institute of Advanced Management and Technology (IAMTECH), an affiliate of Njala University, last Saturday told graduands they have joined the world of academia.

Delivering her address during the conferment of degrees and award of diplomas and certificates on Saturday May 23, Dr. Lauretta Will-Sillah urged the 562 graduands to go out and serve the nation in various capacities.

“We are here to celebrate and recognize our 562 graduands who have meticulously worked hard throughout these very challenging times to achieve this milestone of their respective lives and disciplines. We all are aware of our country’s limitations as far as adequate professionalism expertise is concerned,” she said.

According to Dr. Will-Sillah, Sierra Leone lacks computer engineers and scientists because of the absence of in-depth study in technology. She said their alumni could be found in government departments and private institutions within and outside the country.

She attributed the successes of the institution over the years to contributions made by lecturers and administrative staff.

She disclosed that the college was on the verge of becoming an autonomous university, which will be called UNIMTECH, following the filing of their application at the Tertiary Education Commission.

The IAMTECH Principal appealed to government, through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, for grants-in-aid for their students, and thanked those that had supported them in their construction work.
