 Associate Dean'S Message to the class of 2021

Dear Graduating Class of 2021 in Engineering and Computer Science,

Despite all the challenges you faced, including your academic career being affected by the changes brought with Covid-19, you have achieved what many cannot – to obtain a degree in Engineering or Computer Science!  The path to your degree was not easy, and I commend you all for your persistence and resilience in accomplishing what you have done. You are starting a new chapter in your life, that I wish you nothing but jubilation, good health, and success. 

I look forward to your contribution to the future higher-tech society!

Department Chair & Program Coordinator Messages to the Class of 2021

Civil and Environmental Engineering Graduates!
I congratulate you and your family on this significant milestone in your life. It means so much to be a part of your celebrations, class of 2021!

Please do keep your very own CEE department in thoughts as you embark on your professional journey to provide impactful design solutions to the world. The whole world is waiting for you to prove that Titans do Reach Higher!

Prayers and blessings on your graduation and for your future!

Dr. Phoolendra Mishra
Department Chair, Civil and Environmental Engineering


Computer Engineering Graduates!

Congratulations to the graduating class of 2021!

This might not be the commencement you dreamed of, but it does not in any way take away from all the hard work and sacrifices that has brought you to this one moment. Revel with great pride and joy because this indeed is your moment, both to cherish and celebrate!

The graduating class of 2021 will be one that goes down in history for facing the greatest adversities of our time - the COVID-19 pandemic, a global economic downturn along with civil unrest. However, we persevered and have arrived at the tail end of the pandemic with an economic upswing in full force. It is with absolute conviction and the greatest confidence that I say, that because you endured, your class will come out on the other side far more successful, determined and ready for this amazing ride we call life! 

There will always be uncertain and challenging times but only in the face of great adversity will you truly realize your greatest strengths, your resilience, the depths of your endurance, and ultimately your potential that will help you realize your path to happiness and fulfillment!

It has been my greatest honor and I consider it an absolute privilege to have been your professor and I fervently hope that you have learnt from me and each other as much as I have from you.  That is the beauty of education, it never stops, you learn something new every day!

Let me end with the words of President Barack Obama:  “If the world is going to get better, it's going to be up to you, nobody can tell you anymore that you should be waiting your turn, nobody can tell you anymore that this is how it's always been done. More than ever this is your moment, your generation's world to shape.”
