FROM TEL Aviv to Ballinode, Yoni Novick studied at IT Sligo for two years-from his home in Israel.
On Thursday last, Yoni graduated with a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering Degree(Honours) as one of a number of online students.
While he came to Sligo to carry out laboratory work in a controlled environment and for exams, the remainder of his course was conducted by computer.
Yoni's wife, Dani, travelled from their home in Rehovot, a suburb of Tel Aviv, for the Conferring Ceremony.
There are thousands of online students at IT Sligo.
Yoni said: "I was looking for a programme which fitted my life schedule, googled IT Sligo and found exactly what I wanted."
Yoni has now started teaching electronic engineering and lecturing fulltime in the ORT Engineering College in Rehovot.
He said: "It's all down to my wonderful association with It Sligo."
"It is a time in my life I will never forget. To attend the conferring ceremony was something very special for my wife and I."
