The Vice Chancellor of the Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology(OAUSTECH), Okitipupa in Ondo State, Prof. Temi Ologunorisa, has disclosed that 26 students of the institution graduated with a first-class degree.

Ologunorisa made this known on Monday, March 20, while speaking with journalists on the activities lined up for the joint first convocation of the university.

He said the 26 first-class graduates were among the 982 students that had finished from the institution in five sessions between 2014 and 2022.

Ologunorisa said, “The highlight of the convocation is the award of university first degrees to 982 graduands from five sets – 2014/2015, 2015/2016, 2016/2017, 2018/2019, and 2019/2020 session.

“The breakdown shows that a total of 26 graduates made first class, 307 made second class (upper division), 488 in second class (lower division) and 161 in third class.”

Speaking on the number of first-class graduates, he explained that the school had a culture of standard, quality, and hard work, and every one of their students worked hard to earn their marks.

He added that many of their graduates were performing excellently across the globe.

“The university is noted for a very high academic standard. Some of these graduands are already Ph.D. holders from leading universities in the United States, U.K, Germany, South Africa, and Nigeria.

“One of our recent first class graduates in chemistry, Miss Dimehin Adebisi, was admitted for Ph.D in chemical engineering at the University of Cincinnati, USA without passing through a Master’s degree programme.”

The vice chancellor also noted that in spite of various challenges facing the institution, the university was still thriving and making efforts to transition the varsity from teaching university to research university as it had signed Memoranda of Understanding with many universities across the world.(www.naija247news.com).
