About 1,181 newly minted engineers will depart Friday from CU Boulder, continuing a long tradition of engineering excellence that dates back to 1893.
The noted scholar Billy Madison summarizes the occasion best: "Yahoo for school! Yahoo for me!"
For the first time in recent memory, the College of Engineering and Applied Science is hosting individual department and program ceremonies, instead of one recognition ceremony for the entire college. To make space for every department, several of those ceremonies will be held outdoors, under the big top. Graduates can expect a more personal (and refreshingly shorter) ceremony among the peers and faculty they’ve studied with most closely.
If you still don’t know your way around campus—no judgment—we’ve created a helpful map to find your way to your department ceremony. You can also view the full schedule on the Commencement website.
During the department ceremonies Friday, we’ll recognize the Outstanding Graduates of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. These students are among the best of the best in international engagement, service, research and academics — smart cookies, to say the least.
