UJ celebrates Top Achievers in Pure and Applied Mathematics

​The Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) will be hosting its 2015 Annual Top Achievers Award Ceremony on 22 February 2016, at the Auckland Park, Bunting Road campus.

41 top achievers will be presented with awards ranging in categories from first-year to honours degree level. The ceremony awards students who obtained the highest marks in each of the modules offered by the department.

According to Prof Willem Conradie, Deputy Head of Department: Pure and Applied Mathematics, “The Top Achiever Awards aim to applaud academic achievement within the department and also to motivate the recipients of awards to continue their commitment to academic excellence whilst celebrating their success and potential.”

“Each top achiever receives a certificate and a cash prize. The intention is that these prizes should serve as an affirmation and motivation to persevere with their hard work and to aspire even greater heights,” concluded Prof Conradie.

The following students will be expecting the awards:
