WPI’s Commencement Ceremony dates back to 1871 when the university sent the 16 young men of its very first graduating class out into the world. This year, WPI will celebrate over 1000 graduate and undergraduate students as they take their final walk over Earle Bridge to receive their diplomas.

The Commencement Ceremony will include honorary degree recipients, and the presentations of the WPI Presidential Medal and the Chairman’s Exemplary Faculty Prize.
