Virtual Commencement Ceremony

Although the coronavirus has delayed our in-person commencement ceremony, we are too proud of our graduates to let May go by without celebrating their amazing achievements.

We hope you’ll help us share this special time by leaving a shout-out below, joining in the festivities on social media with #UTGrad2020, and browsing the content we’ll be adding here throughout the month of May. Also, graduates should be on the lookout for more information from the department for a special gift for our graduates.

Make sure to check back here later this month for a special video celebrating our graduates from Interim Department Head Kivanc Ekici and Interim Vice Chancellor of Research Matthew Mench.

For more 2020 commencement content, visit the Tickle College of Engineering’s commencement page and UT’s commencement page.
