WINTER 2016 Commencement

Look for information about the winter 2016 UW-Madison commencement ceremony, Dec. 18, 2016, on the UW-Madison commencement website, commencement.wisc.edu. Individual engineering departments may hold celebrations for students; if you are an engineering student, contact your department for information about those events.

December’s University of Wisconsin–Madison commencement speaker is out of this world. Or at least he has been. Captain James A. Lovell, Jr. is one of only 24 people to go to the moon and back. And he was an engineering student for two years (1946-48) before being accepted to the U.S. Naval academy. Read more here.
