Congratulations to our November 2022 Graduates

On November 24, the Department of Mechanical Engineering celebrated our students graduating in UBC’s November convocation with a reception and awards ceremony. Before graduands crossed the stage and to receive their degrees at the Chan Centre, they joined us one last time in CEME to celebrate with family, classmates, faculty and staff. While November graduation is a smaller cohort than the one in June, it is an important time to recognize the achievements of our graduate students, many of whom receive their degrees in November.

In a brief awards ceremony, Department Head Dr. Steve Feng recognized students’ academic achievements, awarding Degree with Distinction to outstanding UBC Mechanical Engineering graduates.  Adjunct Professor Dan McGreer of the the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering program presented the award the NAME Design Award for outstanding accomplishments in design by the program’s Master of Engineering students.
