At the Faculty of Engineering we are proud of each and every one of our graduates. Normally twice a year we hold a commencement ceremony in the main lecture building at the south campus, or in summer on the ‘Rote Platz’.
The next commencement ceremony is scheduled to take place on:
Friday, February 9th 2024, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Faculty of Engineering, H11 and H7, Cauerstr. 11, Erlangen
You will receive the invitation with your graduation documents from the examination office.
If you would like to attend, you have to REGISTER.
Please note that the possibility to participate is limited due to the space available. You should therefore register online, stating the number of your accompanying persons (max. 3), as soon as possible after receiving your invitation.
As there might be changes, we kindly ask you to check this website for the latest information.
Please note that due to organizational reasons no registration and participation in the celebration will be possible after January 12th 2024.
GOWNS AND CAPS
A graduation cap and gown is a special way to highlight your academic accomplishments during the graduation ceremony. Therefore, we are happy to announce that at the Faculty of Engineering, caps and gowns will be a part of the upcoming ceremony.
In order to increase sustainability, it will be possible for participants to rent a cap and gown, including a sash in TF-silver-grey, which can be done via our cooperation partner „Robe Academicus“ using the link below for a cost of 25 €. We hope that this adds to the festive atmosphere of the event and would be pleased if you take advantage of this offer.
Graduates will receive the set home via DHL no earlier than 2 weeks / no later than 1 week before the ceremony. After the ceremony, you can drop off the set in a prepared container in the returnable, resealable bag which you received with the academic attire, if you did not purchase it.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
If you have any questions, please contact the Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Engineering:

The highlight of the ceremony is the moment when the professors of our 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.
