We've said it before and we'll say it again, South Africa has brilliant young minds who are doing the most to ensure a better future. Seven SA scholars were handpicked to study toward degrees at a prestigious international university.
In 2016, these scholars took part in a rigorous process to be chosen to study at the Breda University of Applied Sciences campus.
They underwent testing and attended interviews. Now, four years later, these students reaped the rewards of their hard work. On 16 July, the scholars graduated in a drive-through graduation ceremony at the Netherlands university.
Some of these students even managed to bag more than one degree after majoring in both logistics engineering and logistics management.
Briefly.co.za learned a total of 12 Bachelor's degrees, one Honours and three Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificates were received by the SA students.
Nompumelelo Mbobo, Gwen Sebopa, Nomahlubi Radebe, Cindy Dlamini and Fenesara Kgwedi graduated with double degrees, which means they were studying for both logistics engineering and logistics management.
The students had to complete 12 modules of each logistics management course to be able to graduate with two degrees.
Bokang Lemaoana and Banele Mello graduated with logistics engineering degrees. Lemaoana was also awarded a Honours degree in entrepreneurship.
The students managed to gain first-hand experience in improving logistics and supply chain management processes during their third and fourth years of studies.
They carried out applied research assignments within organisations such as Bidvest Air Cargo, Transnet Engineering, DSV Netherlands, Ekurhuleni Municipality, SOS Children's Villages South Africa, Roman’s Pizza, MAN South Africa, Dutch Quality Group, TIPS Trailer Services Europe, CEVA Logistics, CASS Europe, Jumbo Supermarkets, Össur Europe, Dråpen i Havet, Elco Heating Solutions, and Penske Logistics.
Their hard work was recognised by the SA Embassy in the Netherlands on social media. The SA Embassy tweeted:
"Today we celebrate the South African students who are graduating from Breda University of Applied Sciences. A number of the students have earned double degrees in logistics and supply chain management. The SA students are did the drive-through graduation on their bicycles!"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on a beautiful woman, who was only identified as @_Newturn1_, who celebrated a great milestone in her life.
