Dr. Duran opended the ceremony with a warm welcoming to the graduates and the guests that attended the ceremony. Following, Prof. de Vries held a speech, pointing out the good work the graduates had done during their time at TUM and encouraged the graduates to keep on working in this field of study in their home countries in order to make a change and help develop their countries' Land Management and Land Tenure into more sustainable and modern levels.

Not all graduates could attend the ceremony in person, however, they weren't left out in the ceremony. Prof. de Vires called up every graduate personally to hand over the Diploma. Some of the graduates had brought their families to the ceremony so that the room was filled with pride and joy.

Especially one graduate is to mention here. Mr. Dimas Yoga Rukmana who received the President's Award this year for his outstanding achievements during his studies at the TUM. He held a speech in which he mentioned all experiences he was able to make and the new friends he made during his time at the University and he expressed his gratitude towards everyone in his batch, his family and the Faculty.

Following the official ceremony, there was a joyful get together after some words of appreciation from Prof. de Vries towards the whole team of the Chair of Land Management, with some snacks and drinks. Everybody stood together in a cheerful mood and even some of the students that we welcomed in our Program past September had attended the ceremony to cheer for the graduates and pay their farewell to them. This is a great sign of how close the students in our program work together and the bonds that have developed even between the students of different years.

The Chair wants to wish the Graduates 2017 all the best for their future and congratulates them on their successful graduation!
