The Palestinian students who graduated, like graduates in engineering schools throughout the world had to work hard to complete their engineering degrees. In addition, since most Palestinian students do not reside on campus, they start their days very early in order to get through checkpoints and other constraints on movement to be on time for classes. In some instances when these students were denied passage, they missed critical exams. Yet, these Palestinian students persisted and completed their degrees in engineering.
