Q. Please tell us about your Convocation programme which is very urgent for the graduating students.
Sufi Mizan: Yes, we also give special priority to this matter. So far we have successfully organized two convocations for our graduates. In 2009 the First Convocation was held where the Chancellor of UITS was the then President of the country Mohammad Zillur Rahman and the Convocation Speaker was Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the then President of India. And the Second Convocation of the UITS was held in the month of March, 2014. In this Convocation the Chancellor of the University and the President of the country Mohammad Abdul Hamid was present and the Convocation Speaker was Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia.
