The College of the North Atlantic - Qatar (CNA-Q) on Wednesday celebrated the graduation of the 16th batch, in a virtual ceremony on the college's YouTube channel, in implementation of the precautionary measures imposed by the state to avoid the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The ceremony witnessed the graduation of 463 male and female students in all disciplines of engineering technology, industrial professions, business administration, information technology, and health sciences, in the presence of graduates, members of the CNA-Q's board of directors, teaching and administrative staff, and students' parents.

In his speech at the ceremony, H.E. Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr. Mohammed Abdul Wahed Al Hammad stressed that students demonstrated their ability and determination to achieve their goals through reaching what they have been seeking for many years, which culminated in their obtaining degrees and graduation certificates under exceptional circumstances imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, wishing them a bright future, and that their distinguished path and experience contribute to enhancing their contribution to building and elevating this country that gave them so much.

H.E. Chair of CNA-Q's Board of Trustees Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al Sada emphasized that the college was and is a pioneer in applied technical education, proud to graduate students with a high level of knowledge and competence, equipped with the necessary skills to contribute to building the future of the State of Qatar and achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030.

President of CNA-Q Dr. Khalifa bin Nasser Al Khalifa underlined that CNA-Q, since its establishment in 2002, has made an effective contribution in providing the Qatari economy with trained cadres to engage in the labor market, thus ensuring the advancement of progress and development in the homeland.

Dr. Al Khalifa affirmed that in the coming days, the college will introduce new programs and specialties, which are programs of an applied technical nature needed by the state, in cooperation with the labor market and partners, expressing hope that these programs will see the light soon.

The 16th batch is one of the largest batches that graduated from the college since its founding nearly 18 years ago in the State of Qatar. CNA-Q is proud of the batch, especially in light of the exceptional circumstances imposed by the COVID-19 spread on the educational process in Qatar and around the world.
