USD's Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering welcomes all graduating engineering and computer science seniors to attend the official celebration of this major milestone in the academic careers of our Toreros graduating Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021. The event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to recognize their hard work, time and effort invested in completing USD's Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering undergraduate degree programs.

The virtual ceremony is by invitation only and will include a welcome by Dean Chell Roberts, VIP and alumni guest speakers, time-honored professional ethics induction ceremonies, acknowledgement of each graduate and more. This is a semi-formal event, so professional attire is recommended. Graduates will participate via Zoom, and family, friends and guests will participate synchronously via YouTube Live. This technical arrangement allows for unlimited guests to participate in this exciting event.

Professional Ethics Induction

The Order of the Engineer and the Pledge of the Computing Professional are rite-of-passage ceremonies for graduates from engineering and computing science degree programs. Both ceremonies are intended to promote and recognize the ethical and moral behavior of graduates, upholding devotion to the standards and dignity of the respective professions, as they transition from students to working professionals. For graduates to receive their respective rings or pins and certificates, they must attend and participate in the time-honored ceremonies.

Graduates are being asked to provide their ring size (engineers), phonetic pronunication of their name, headshot, photos and quote for a virtual yearbook presented at the event and to serve as a keepsake, and mailing address to receive their graduation gift package with ring/pin, certificate and alumni gift.
