Graduation Ceremonies

At DTU, we are proud of our graduates, and we celebrate the academic accomplishments of all new graduates at biannual Graduation Ceremonies.

Upcoming Graduation Ceremonies

Bachelors of Engineering: Tuesday 16 November 2021

Masters of Science in Engineering: Wednesday 17 November 2021

These Graduation Ceremonies are for graduates who have completed their education in the period 1 June 2021 - 30 September 2021 (end dates registered by the study administration).

Registration is now closed, but you can follow the Graduation Ceremony via live-streaming (see link below).


Practical Information/FAQ

When will I receive my diploma?
The study administration sends your official diploma to you by mail, but it may take a few months from you finish your studies. If you have questions about your diploma, please contact the student administration:

At the Graduation Ceremony, you will receive a congratulatory diploma that you can for example hang on the wall in a frame. If you do not attend the Graduation Ceremony, the congratulatory diploma will be sent to you by mail 1-2 months after the Graduation Ceremony.

When will I receive my invitation?
Personal invitations will be sent about 5-6 weeks before the Graduation Ceremonies to all relevant graduates to the email that DTU Alumni has registered.

If you want to be sure to receive your invitation, please register as a member of DTU Alumni and make sure that we have your e-mail address (not your student e-mail, but an e-mail that we can also use in the future to get in touch with you).

Can I participate in a different Graduate Ceremony earlier or later?
Unfortunately, for practical and logistical reasons, DTU cannot offer you to participate in a different Graduation Ceremony than the one to which you are invited. Typically, about 400 graduates are invited to each Graduation Ceremony.

How do I register?
You register for the Graduation Ceremony through the link in your personal invitation.

Registration is now closed, but you can follow the Graduation Ceremony via live-streaming (see link below).

Where does the event take place and how is the programme? 
The event takes place in building 101 on DTU Lyngby campus. 

First, there will be an official ceremony in the sports hall with speeches and presentation of all registered graduates, which lasts about 1 hour. You will be seated with your guests in an area designated to your study programme.

Subsequently, there will be an informal celebration in the glass hall, divided by study programmes and together with the heads of study. This part will last ½-1 hour. A glass of bubbles will be served here (with or without alcohol).

Corona passport required
Please note that due to covid-19 restrictions you (and your guests) will need to bring a valid Corona passport and you will not be able to participate in the event if you show signs of illness. Corona passports will be checked at the entrance and persons without a valid Corona passport will not be allowed entrance.

How should I dress?

There is no official dress code, but the trend for most ceremonies is a mix between casual and well dressed.

Whom should I bring to the ceremony?
We expect that there will be room for all registered graduates to bring up to 3 guests.

Most graduates bring their parents, their boyfriend/ girlfriend or other relatives, but close friends are also welcome.

Family and friends will also be able to watch via livestreaming (see link below).

Where can I park?
There are parking lots at building 101 adjacent to Anker Engelunds Vej and at Studentertorvet. See map.

Will there be a photographer?
Yes, a photographer will take photos of all graduates. The photos will be published on Flickr (for high resolution downloads) as well as on DTU Alumni's Facebook page within 1-2 weeks. All registered graduates will be notified directly by email when the photos are available.

Will the Graduation Ceremony be live streamed?
If you are unable to attend in person, or if you know more people who would like to watch, the official ceremony will be streamed on this link:

What if I become ill or for some reason cannot attend?
If you become ill or are prevented from attending, please cancel via the link in your registration confirmation.

I complete my education on 1 October 2021 or later – when will I be invited to a Graduation Ceremony?
You will be invited to a Graduation Ceremony in 2022. The dates have not yet been determined and will be announced by the end of the year.
