A Message From the Dean

Dear Graduates, Families and Friends,

We are so proud of our UC Davis College of Engineering Class of 2020. The world needs more Aggie engineers: people who understand the essentials of engineering and have the knowledge, passion and drive to address society’s challenges with creativity, inspiration and innovation. Fortunately, we are graduating more Aggie engineers than ever before.

This year’s graduating class has shown tremendous resilience, flexibility and resourcefulness—traits that will serve them well as they embark on their paths as engineers. Thank you to all our graduates and those who join them to celebrate this amazing accomplishment and the great possibilities that lie ahead.

Jennifer Sinclair Curtis
Dean of the College of Engineering and Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering
