APIIT takes pride inthis group of graduates, most of whom, like their predecessors are already gainfully employed by the time they graduate. These are not merely individuals who carry paper qualifications; they havebeen molded by a modern curriculum not only geared to the needsof industrybut also focusedon personality development and professionalism. Surely, they are individuals who will hit the deck running when they enter industry and have the strength of character to successfully facethe challenges of the 21st century. No doubt that the graduating class of 2016 will add to the positive industry feedback that APIIT has been receiving consistently over the years.
