Honoring graduate students earning doctoral and master’s degrees, and graduate certificates, in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Our college’s graduate students provide extraordinary contributions during their time with us. They conduct and publish research, assist with or lead course instruction, mentor undergraduate students, and more. Consequently, the college has planned this formal event to honor our graduating graduate students and their families.
