The Department of Geography, Environmental Management and Energy Studies (GEMES) recently celebrated the achievements of top undergraduate and postgraduate students at its Annual Prize-giving Ceremony held at the Auckland Park campus. Providing a learning and an intellectually stimulating environment as well as recognising their development potential is one of the long standing traditions in this Department.
“As a Department we are very pleased about the academic performance and the distinguished accolades received by our top students. They are an example of excellence to other students and we hope that they will not lose the momentum to work harder than the rest, thus positioning themselves well for their academic career and future employment prospects. We also recognize the meaningful role and the quality teaching and instruction provided by lecturers in our Department. Lastly, we also acknowledge the supportive and nurturing environment they have received from their parents, family and friends,” said the Department HoD, Dr Isaac Rampedi.
