Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons- Well Deserved Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2013

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner was highly anticipated by people all over the world. With contenders like Malal Yousufzai, Bradley Manning and Denis Mukwege, people all over the world were waiting with bated breath to find out who the winner would be. According to the Nobel Peace Prize committee itself, 2013 marked the highest number of nominations ever, standing at a total of 259 out of which 50 were organizations.  However, the wait finally came to an end on October 11, when the committee in Oslo declared that this year’s Prize would go to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. This prize was not just a result of the work the OPCW had done in Syria, but also took into account the organization’s contributions to the elimination of chemical weapons for the past 16 years. 

The OPCW’s work is a tribute to humanity and the eradication of a lethal weapon that has caused loss of human life for many countries in the past. The OPCW is a favorite employer for many students and individuals studying chemistry, bio-engineering and the like.  With the Nobel Peace Prize having gone to an entity like the OPCW, more and more people are now expressing their interest to work for this noble cause. This can only be possible with the right combination of qualifications and experience. 

Pittsford University’s School of Natural Sciences offers majors in Biology and Chemistry, complete with relevant exercises and coursework that will make the students ready to take up any related position in the job market. Pittsford University has been offering quality education to students all over the world and has made it possible for them make successful careers for themselves. Students of the University are not just educated in terms of subject matter, but great emphasis on skill development is also placed. The OPCW is the kind of an organization where all dedicated students would want to work in and Pittsford University believes in giving them the tools to achieve this.
