When: Saturday, June 13th
Check-in: 6:30PM-7:30PM
Ceremony: 7:30PM-9:30PM
Location: Warren Mall, UC San Diego

We invite graduating engineers of the Jacobs School of Engineering, families, and friends to participate in Ring Ceremony. The ceremony will include recognition awards, a keynote speaker, the Jacobs School graduation oath, and the presentation of the rings. The graduation oath is a commitment of participants to uphold standards of ethics, integrity, and quality as practicing engineers and as graduates of the Jacobs School. Participants will receive a ring to be worn as a symbol of this commitment. The ring is a plain stainless steel silver band engraved on the inside with UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering.
