The future leaders of the energy and resources sectors have today graduated from University College London’s (UCL) Australian campus in Adelaide.
A total of 24 students from Australia, USA, UK, Korea, Indonesia and Trinidad & Tobago have graduated with various degrees, including masters, diplomas and graduate certificates in energy and resources.
As well as full-time students, graduates include part-time employees of Santos, BHP Billiton and KOGAS.
UCL vice-provost (Education) Professor Anthony Smith, leader of UCL’s Global Citizenship agenda, is visiting from London to preside over UCL Australia’s third graduation since its opening in 2010.
Among those who received the highest accolades today were prize winners Lendyn Philip and Listya Mustafida.
Lendyn won the Torrens Prize for academic achievement and Listya the Grote Medal for the student who best exhibited UCL values. These include being a critical and creative thinker; ambitious but also idealistic and committed to ethical behaviour; aware of the intellectual and social value of culture difference; an entrepreneur with the ability to innovate; willing to assume leadership roles in the family, the community and the workplace; and highly employable and ready to embrace professional mobility.
Professor Smith said he was proud to see the Australian campus’s third group of graduates recognised in today’s UCL graduation ceremony.
“Today’s prize winners and graduates walk away from one of the foremost academic institutions in the world – currently rated fourth best globally – boasting no less than 21 Nobel Prize winners,” he said.
“We are pleased that UCL Australia, as UCL’s first overseas campus – and in fact the first British university campus established in Australia – is continuing our commitment to leadership, innovation and diversity.”
UCL chief executive David Travers said today’s graduates undoubtedly have the potential to be the next leaders of industry and policy makers.
“They are ready to be the next leaders of industry and highly sought after by employers. We congratulate them on their achievements and dedication to furthering their knowledge and indeed their commitment to paving the way forward with their study and research,” he said.
