Malawi Polytechnic set to produce first PhD graduate in IT: Thokozani Chimkono

The Polytechnic is set to produce its first Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) graduate in Applied Sciences (Information technology).

Chimkono to be Dr: Not from Jerusalem Bible college but Malawi Poly

The college’s website says this follows Thokozani Chimkono’s successful defense of his PhD thesis.

The title of the thesis is ‘fast typing central-Bantu keyboard; optimization language structure, algorithms and models’.

Chimkono defended his thesis on Friday before a panel of examiners.

“However, based on the University of Malawi postgraduate policy, the award of the PhD degree can only be done upon final recommendation of the University senate,” says the information on the website.

The college says Chimkono will have to fulfill other examination requirements before he can be presented to University senate for recommendation for the PhD award.

Speaking during a cocktail organised to celebrate his success, Chimkono thanked all those who assisted him throughout his academic journey.

Wrong picture used to illustrate a story about graduation. Where is his gown? Where is his PhD hood?

Owen Khamula, the title is misleading. It is not the first PhD from Poly but rather from that particular department and specialty.
