George William Busulwa made the remarks during his motivational speech to the newly admitted undergraduate students at the orientation ceremony for September 2017 Intake held on Monday, 11th September 2017 at UTAMU Campus in Bugolobi.

“Don’t make anyone responsible for your failures. Start your studies as a person who really knows what they want in life and career, stop the blame game and challenge your selves,” said Busulwa.

He further commended UTAMU for the opportunity of sending students for internship or community engagement every four months of a year.

“The one and a half years of working experience I have is thanks to UTAMU’s community engagement policy. It is because of this experience that I managed to get a job even before graduating,” Busulwa commended UTAMU.

The third year student of Bachelor of Science in Mobile Computing and Communications also encouraged students to develop experience by reading widely, utilizing the free internet at UTAMU to carryout research online.

“Don’t think lecturers are going to give you 100% of work. Research on your own, learn on your own,” said Busulwa, adding that

“In today’s employment world, yes academic papers are important but no employer will want you if you have no skills,” he added.

Busulwa who is set to graduation on 29th September at the third graduation ceremony of UTAMU works at Laboremus Uganda. The Company specializes in customised software development, solving business and IT problems.
