The ceremony

At the Faculty of Engineering we are proud of each and every one of our graduates. Normally twice a year we hold a graduation ceremony in the main lecture building at the south campus, or in summer on the ‘Rote Platz’. But due to CORONA our graduation must be online at the moment.

The highlight of the ceremony is the moment when the professors of the five departments formally hand over congratulatory certificates personally to each of the graduates. The top students are also granted awards from industry.

But there ist more: Entertaining, witty speeches from leading figures from industry and top scientists and motivating performances from well-known artists such as the mentalist Harry Riegel, who regularly astounds millions of listeners with inexplicable experiments on radio, ensure that there is never a dull moment.

The official part of the ceremony is completed by some final words from graduates and the formal speech of the Dean before the more informal celebrations start, with plenty of opportunity to chat, enjoy the live music and have something to eat or drink. We hope that the ceremony is a memorable occasion for our graduates, who are standing at the threshold to their professional careers, and encourages them to remain in touch with our Faculty of Engineering for the rest of their lives.
