Order of the Engineer Ceremony


Family and friends, help us celebrate the graduating class of engineers during The College of Engineering Order of the Engineer Ceremony. In recognition of their academic accomplishments, all graduating students are recognized individually on stage. Students receiving a Bachelor of Science degree will receive an official Order of the Engineer stainless steel ring to show their obligation to the profession. Master of Science degree recipients will be hooded by their advisor. PhD graduates will be acknowledged and hooded at the university's Commencement.

As each graduate crosses the stage, notice the unique regalia they wear. Engineering and Computer Science Bachelor's degree graduates are in the traditional academic regalia. Master's degree graduates are distinguished by the orange color on the outer binding of their hoods.
