This is your moment— crossing the threshold from academia into new worlds of engineering. You deserve to be recognized and celebrated for all you have accomplished. Reflect on everything you have achieved and everything you are going to achieve in the next phase of your lives.
We know you are excited and anxious about what may lie ahead, but your horizons are bright. You have already experienced radical changes, changes that you have made with grace, flexibility, dedication, resiliency, and sense of community. You’ve been well educated, inspired, and mentored by the best faculty members in the world and from each other. You have—no doubt— unlimited, unparalleled opportunities as a Queen’s Engineering graduate!
No matter what you do or where you go, Queen’s Engineering will always be your family. Along with your family, friends, professors and the entire Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, we wish you well as you enter the world with curiosity and fervor.
We look forward to sharing in the celebration with festive activities featured on this site and leading up to the main event—our Virtual Reception— commencing on June 24, 2021. This is your moment. Celebrate with pride!
Don’t let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it and make it the life you want to live.– Mae Jemison, Engineer, Physician, and Former NASA Astronaut
