Congratulations to the 2024 BAEM, MS, and Ph.D. graduates on all of their accomplishments!


The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics (AEM) recognized and celebrated its newest graduates on May 9, 2024. 

On a breezy, but warm spring morning, graduates and their families walked over to a nearby hotel ballroom for a reception held by AEM. The 2024 AEM Graduation Celebration began at 10 a.m. with opening remarks by Professor and Department Head, Perry Leo, followed by Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Yohannes Ketema, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Ryan Elliott, and Graduating Senior and Rocket Team President, Gaven House.

Once closing remarks wrapped up, the grads and guests enjoyed refreshments and plenty of photo opps with friends, family and AEM faculty. Afterwards, the AEM Undergraduates headed to Mariucci Arena for the College of Science and Engineering Commencement Ceremony.
