The First Post-Conflict Graduation Ceremony of The Somali National University

Somalia has too many universities. 90% of these students take degrees in badly-taught soft subjects and then graduate expecting government employment. Where are the vocational schools teaching needed courses, like in construction?

This is the first cohort that has graduated since 1991 sxb, before the collapse there were hard subjects such as engineering and other hard sciences being taught. However since many of the learned people of Somalia have fled the nation we are beginning to see some aspects of normalcy/functionality return to the nation once more. I agree that vocational courses on construction, shipbuilding and overall manufacturing would be a great boost to productivity I believe the instructors for those courses wouldn't feel safe in Somalia just yet. But if we continue to stabilize and build upon this then the potential is there to broaden the scope.
