University of Michigan's College of Engineering hosts two graduation events: Spring and Winter commencements. Our department hosts an IOE department celebratory lunch for graduates in the spring.

Information about 2016 graduation will be available in early spring 2016. 



Every fall semester, we welcome students, families, and alumni back to campus for Homecoming. The College puts on family-friendly parade and festivities on North Campus. During this exciting weekend, we honor alumni at the annual CoE Alumni Awards and host an IOE department lunch for alumni and students.

Watch how U-M engineers and their community celebrate homecoming and join in the fun for next year! Explore CoE Homecoming 2015 videos, photos and links
