The Graduation Ceremonies are being streamed so family and friends can watch even though they do not have the opportunity to come to DTU.

The three Graduation Ceremonies for new Bachelors of Engineering and Master of Science in Engineering at the end of October 2018 had a total of more than 2,000 views across more than 50 different countries.

In addition to Denmark, most of them were from India, Italy, Greece, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States.

Good advice from three experienced alumni to new engineers and photos from Graduation Ceremonies this autumn where 700 new Bachelors of Engineering and Masters of Science in Engineering were celebrated.

At biannual Graduation Ceremonies, DTU celebrates all new engineers. We always invite an alum to come and talk and inspire the new graduates to both provide them with insights into how a career can shape and give them a few good tips to get a good start.

At the end of October, three alumni spoke to the new Bachelors of Engineering and Masters of Science in Engineering. Here is their advice as well as photos from the Graduation Ceremonies:

"Go for it!
Find out find out what is truly motivating for you and where your skills fit the best. Right now you may not know what your unique skills and your passion are. That is fine, but if so be curious, explore and experiment until you find out. Say YES to the opportunities that come your way. And make sure to pick your leader carefully. He or she will have a big impact on the opportunities you will be offered to develop - especially in the beginning of your career.

Keep learning!
We live in a changing world – technologies and businesses are changing exponentially. What you have learnt in your education is a strong foundation, but those of you who will be most successful are those of you who can adapt and learn new skills fast.

Be nice to people
Not because you owe it to someone, not because you will get something in return – just because it is the right way to be."

"Break down walls and bridges – engineer a better tomorrow of inclusiveness and diversity
The global political agenda is swinging towards isolation. You as freshly graduated engineers have the power, through the work with technology, to break down walls and bridges across national borders, cultures and professional boundaries. It has never been more crucial than now for you to reach out to engineer a better tomorrow of inclusiveness and diversity. Not only to create a better world, but even more importantly to create a more meaningful and colorful life for yourselves."
