How will we celebrate the Class of 2020 online?

All of the AE School's Spring degree candidates will be individually recognized during an online ceremony that will be streamed to friends, family members, alumni and future employers around the globe. Using BlueJeans to open up the ceremony to all interested parties, we will have opening remarks from the AE School Chair, Prof. Mark Costello, a special graduation speaker, and, most importantly, the public pronouncement of all the degree candidates. A video will be compiled that will be made available after the ceremony.

NOTE: This ceremony will celebrate a milestone, but a degree is formally conferred only after the Registrar has done a final audit of your degree requirements.
