Spring 2020 Graduation

Mechanical Engineering Online Celebration

Graduating students will be emailed a link to our congratulatory website on May 15. This will not be a livestreamed event but will be a website you can browse at your own convenience. See photos and bios of our graduates, watch videos from mechanical engineering faculty and staff, watch videos of our keynote speakers, read Q&As with our outstanding student award winners, and read congratulatory messages from the department, alumni, families and peers who have contributed to our graduation kudoboard

Special thanks to Spencer Miller with The Miller Bros LLC for video production and Megan Byers with Design Elixir LLC who designed the graduation website.
