Recognition of Graduates Event

Many engineering and computer science societies' codes of ethics include statements of the professional responsibilities of their working members. The purpose of this ceremony is to remind and encourage NC State College of Engineering students to be cognizant of these responsibilities as they embark on the professional phase of their lives. In addition, we wish to celebrate the conclusion of their time on campus and wish them well in future endeavors as they represent themselves, their families, the college and NC State itself.

Postponed for 2020: Recognition of Graduates Event (ROGE)

The College of Engineering has made the decision to postpone the Recognition Of Graduate Ceremony (ROGE) until the spring of 2021 at the earliest.

We know how important the ROGE ceremony is to our students and we are working hard to ensure that we can host this event in the safest way possible.

The College’s ROGE event and initiation ceremony of the Order of the Engineer and the Pledge of Computing Professionals is open to all recent graduates and alumni and thus we hope that COE graduates from the Spring and Fall of 2020 can join us when we resume our live ceremonies.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. Please continue to check back on our page for updates.
