The dean of a Qatar Foundation partner university has taken a journey to personally congratulate each graduating engineer from its Class of 2021.
César Octavio Malavé, dean of Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ), helped graduating students celebrate a special time in their lives by visiting each of them at their homes and presenting them with their engineering degrees, with his trip taking place from May 9 – 13.
TAMUQ graduated 107 engineers on May 5, with its Class of 2021 including 89 Aggies who received bachelor’s degrees in chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering.
Twenty-two graduates were recognized as Undergraduate Research Scholars of Texas A&M’s main campus in College Station and 35 students graduated with Latin honors. TAMUQ also awarded 18 master’s degrees in chemical engineering.
Of the graduating class, 57 percent are female, and 51 percent are Qatari, with graduates representing 19 nationalities. To date, 1,268 students have graduated from TAMUQ.
