College of Engineering Convocation and Hooding Ceremony

Begins 9:00 am
Friday May 1, 2020
Dee Glen Smith Spectrum

The College of Engineering undergraduate convocation ceremony and graduate hooding ceremonies will be combined into a single event. This means undergraduates and master’s and PhD candidates attend the same graduation event.

Join us Friday, May 1 at 9 a.m. in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum for this special ceremony where we recognize each graduate by name and award them with a beautiful diploma cover. Your official diploma will be mailed to you separately.

Tickets are not required for this event. Immediately following the ceremony, join us for ice cream on the lawn just north of the Education Building (EDUC). Look for the giant white tent.

Video coverage of the ceremony will be streamed live at
