Ceremony for Aviation College Class of 2012.

Dubai: The class of 2012, constituting 158 graduates from 25 different nationalities were awarded graduation honours from the Emirates Aviation College on July 2.

Twenty-seven students received their Bachelor Degree with Honours in Electronics and Aeronautical Engineering, of which 13 were Emarati nationals, who were also employees of Emirates Airlines. The 13 students had previously completed their higher diplomas from the college last year, and now earned their bachelor degrees. Dr. Ahmad Al Ali, Vice-Chancellor of Emirates Aviation College, said "22 per cent of the graduates have earned their second degree from the College."

The ceremony, which was held at the university, was attended by Gary Chapman, President of Group Services and Dnata, Abdul Aziz Al Ali, Executive Vice President of Emirates Airline Human Resources, and Dr. Ahmad Al Ali, Deputy Director of the College.

A total of 27 graduates, nearly 20 per cent of the total graduates, were UAE Nationals.

"Our average student age of 25 years old is a clear indication of how the Emirates Aviation College is meeting the needs of students from a variety of backgrounds -- from school dropouts entering higher education for the first time to mature students extending their education through graduation programmes. Ali said.
