Master of Ceremonies was College of Sharia and Islamic Studies student Abdulrahman Al Shemari, who formally opened the graduation with the national anthem and recitations from the Holy Quran before the assembled graduates and guests watched a short documentary film about their student lives and achievements at the university. Presenting the students with their graduation certificates, QU President Professor Sheikha Al Misnad said: “This day is a proud day for you, your families and all the QU community. Your years of hard work, dedication and commitment have paid off and you stand here now, on the threshold of a new and exciting life. “As QU alumni, you are the faces of the university and the future of Qatar and we hope you will relish the opportunity to act as ambassadors and help the coming graduates to achieve as much as you have done and will continue to do so. “The education and skills you have gained at QU will stand you in great stead for the lives ahead of you. You are the future leaders of Qatar — you will play an important role in the development of our State for many years to come. I have every confidence that you will take these opportunities and responsibilities and run with them. We all wish you every success.” The breakdown of the graduating male students was: College of Arts and Sciences graduated 33 students; College of Engineering 83 BSc and eight Masters students; College of Business and Economics 74 undergraduate students and six MBA and MAC students; College of Education two undergraduates, three Masters and six Diploma students; College of Law seven students and College of Shariah and Islamic Studies four undergraduate students. Valedictorian Khaled Al Shemari, from the College of Law, spoke on behalf of all graduates when he gave thanks to QU faculty and staff for the support given to the students. He said: “We accomplished our mission today, however, it is not the end of the road — it is only the beginning. Step by step we will go on our journey to success. “I take the opportunity to thank everyone who walked along with us on our academic journey and supported us and encouraged us to reach where we are today.” The graduation of 845 female Qatar University students will take place later today, in a ceremony at the QNCC presided over by the President of Hamad bin Khalifa University H E Sheikh Abdulla bin Ali Al Thani.
