The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering celebrated the occasion of commencement by hosting a reception on Friday, April 27, 2018, in the Blue Lounge. Professors Jerry Lynch (Chair), Avery Demond (Undergraduate Co-Chair), and Adda Athansopoulos-Zekkos (Graduate Chair) made a few remarks as refreshments were enjoyed by all. CEE graduated 13 PhD, 61 Master’s, and 76 BSE degrees this past academic year.

As Professor Lynch stated, “It is a joyous occasion as you have accomplished something absolutely great – the diploma you receive this weekend is evidence of the knowledge and wisdom you have acquired while a student on this campus. As a member of the faculty, I will state on behalf of my colleagues that we all are extremely proud to have been a part of that beautiful process of intellectual growth. However, your diploma is also evidence of your commitment to a higher ideal – that you will (and must) make the world a better place. That is truly what it means to be a graduate of the University of Michigan and of our department.”

Congratulations to the Class of 2017-18 and Forever, Go Blue!
