Congratulations Ph.D. graduates in the Bioengineering Program — Class of 2020

Nina Welding • DATE: May 22, 2020

The Bioengineering Program would like to congratulate each of you who graduated this past year but were unable to be honored with the traditional hooding ceremony with your advisors, family, and friends.

The current pandemic has underscored the important role of engineering in healthcare and biomedical science. Those essential tools that we have heard so much about — such as test kits, ventilators, PPE, vaccines, and drugs — all rely on bioengineers for their development and manufacturing.

We are proud of our alumni who are already contributing in many ways to advancing health care in the world and are excited to see how you, the Class of 2020, will participate in making the world a better place through your efforts.

Although you were not able to participate in a traditional Commencement this spring, we hope you will join us next year to be honored in person. Best wishes and Go Irish!

— Glen Niebur, professor and director of the 
Bioengineering Graduate Program
