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.


Graduating engineering students planning to attend Ring Ceremony are REQUIRED to purchase a ring in order to participate.


You have the opportunity to purchase a Jacobs School of Engineering stole through the registration form below.

Students who are NOT planning to participate in Ring Ceremony can also purchase a ring using the registration form below.

Since the event is being held at night, we recommend that you and your guests plan to dress in layers or wear a light jacket with an extra layer of clothing.

Are you interested in being the distinguished student speaker for Ring Ceremony 2018? The allotted time for the speech is 5 minutes, and the deadline to apply is April 8th, 2018. We will then review applications and invite candidates to present their proposed speech in person, before selecting the student speaker.


The Senior Class Gift (SCG) is your first step into joining the UC San Diego alumni community and showing how much being a Triton means to you. The mission of the SCG is to engage seniors to leave their legacy and cultivate a pattern of philanthropy before leaving UC San Diego. By giving $20.18 in honor of our graduating class, you are committing to make UC San Diego a better place. We give back because seniors before us helped make our Triton experience possible. Now it's our turn to give others the same opportunities. Your participation in Ring Ceremony provides you with a legacy that will enhance learning opportunities for future Jacobs School students through the Student Travel Fund.
