Graduate Hooding Ceremony

 

Family and friends, help us celebrate the graduating class of engineers during The College of Engineering Graduate Hooding Ceremony. In recognition of their academic accomplishments, all graduating students are recognized individually on stage, Master of Science degree recipients and PhD graduates will be hooded by their advisor, and recognized by the faculty.

As each graduate crosses the stage, notice the unique regalia they wear. Master's degree graduates are distinguished by the black tassels and orange color on the outer binding of their hoods. Doctoral regalia is distinguished by the antique gold tassels and felt on the gowns.
