This May we were fortunate and grateful to host in-person events for our 2021 graduates. The small ceremonies took place May 26th and 27th for graduates and undergraduates, respectively. Speakers included Department Chair Howard Katz, faculty members Todd Hufnagel, and Orla Wilson. Graduating seniors were recognized with awards (listed below) and the ceremonies were streamed live via Zoom. While masks were still required at the time, the graduates were served boxed lunches and allowed to socialize and eat together on the engineering quad to celebrate afterward. Thank you to all who participated and attended, both in-person and online.
