    It was a memorable moment for some 686 Politeknik Brunei (PB) students when their success and achievements were acknowledged during the eighth convocation ceremony at the International Convention Centre, Berakas.

    The ceremony marked the completion of their Level 5 Diploma programmes and study disciplines. It also served as a platform to celebrate their three-year journey, stories they shared and challenges they overcame.

    Nurul Hasyimah binti Haji Metussin, a holder of Level 5 Diploma in Electrical and Electronics Engineering under the PB School of Science and Engineering, was overjoyed after her name was announced for the Best Student Award.

    She said one of her most memorable experiences during her studies was participating in the Student Representative Council, where students’ personality and morals are shaped to become intelligent and polite people.

    Alhamdulillah, PB provided exposure and opportunity during our six-month temporary work placements,” she said.

    “I had the opportunity to become an apprentice at the Science Technology and Environment Partnership Centre (STEP Centre).

    “Among the valuable experiences during my temporary work placement was being an instructor for two programmes run by the STEP Centre; namely F1 in School and Steam for Future in the field of engineering for secondary school students.”

    Academic Excellence Award recipient Muhammad Zakwan bin Haji Zunaidi took the achievement as motivation and a starting point to be more prepared for the future.

    Muhammad Zakwan is a holder of a Level 5 Diploma certificate in Digital Media under the PB School of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

    He said during his studies, he gained knowledge and skills to help contribute his energy and ideas in achieving Brunei Vision 2035, as well as help improve the quality of education and life of the people and residents of the country and to be better knowledgeable, especially in the field of digitisation.

    With the skills he acquired with his course mates, which include using software and hardware in the production of videos, photos, animations, graphic design and 3D animations, one of the group’s final year projects was aimed at enhancing public service awareness on the topic of road safety in collaboration Radio Television Brunei (RTB).

    “I know my strengths and weaknesses, and from there I worked to improve. Over the years studying at PB, I saw my progress develop,” she said. “PB provided us with enhancement skills, especially in self-development such as leadership.

    She also said the lecturers advised students to have a balance in life such as taking part in sports during their free time.
