Class of 2023 Commencement

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. WPI celebrates the completion of graduate and undergraduate degree requirements with two separate graduation ceremonies.

Across two ceremonies on May 11 and May 13, 2023, more than 1,500 graduate and undergraduate students took their final walk as students over Earle Bridge to receive their bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree. See details to the right and below.
