BUK graduate bags Gold Medal Award in India after graduating as the best student in Masters in Engineering at Sharda University India.
A student from Kano State studying in India, Abdulrazaq Nafiu Abubakar, 27, has bagged the Vice Chancellor’s Gold Medal Award in India after graduating as the best student in Masters of Technology in Engineering at Sharda University, India.
Abubakar from Nasarawa Local Government Area, who graduated with CGPA 9.89 out of 10.00 in India, had studied Mechatronics Engineering at Bayero University, Kano during his undergraduate studies where he received the 2019 Ahmadu Adamu Muazu prize for the best student with CGPA 4.9 in the Faculty of Engineering.
Upon graduation in 2019, the young graduate won a foreign scholarship for 370 First Class Kano Graduates to India for his Master’s Degree courtesy of Kwankwasiyya Development Foundation.
When asked how he was able to achieve this feat, he said all credits go to his mentors who motivated and guided him to reach the summit.
“Well, there is nothing much to say on how I emerged as the best student, it is Allah’s will.
“But I know that I concentrate fully in all of my academic classes, as well as laboratories,” he said.
He further explained that most of his leisure time was used for assignments and researches as he is highly interested in Automation and Robotics Engineering.
Nafi’u also pointed out that one of the serious challenges he faced during his undergraduate studies was difficulty in accessing research in his field of study because it was a brand new programme then.
He described studying in India as a novel experience that exposed him to various learning opportunities but added that studying in a new environment and in a COVID-19 pandemic era was challenging and difficult to cope with.
