Bernice Varga, who earned a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering, touches a poster with UT Dallas mascot Temoc for luck as she prepares to enter the Activity Center's Main Gym for her commencement ceremony.
Computer science graduate Rebecca Barsotti makes it official by moving the tassel on her mortarboard during the first ceremony for the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
Meg Fernandez's flowers on her mortarboard stand out from the crowd, which she says makes her an "artistic rebel" in the computer science department.
Alejandro Casasola, who earned a bachelor's degree in computer science, says the "T" stands for tenacious. He says he was 2 years old when he and his family emigrated from Argentina for a chance at a better life in America.
Saumya Dixit says it was hard leaving India to attend UTD but earning her master's degree in computer science made it worth the sacrifice.
Dr. Ahmed Ali celebrated his doctoral hooding with his wife, Soha Mahmoud, and daughter Lyla. Ali earned a PhD in electrical engineering from the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and is working for Qualcomm.
Dr. Niharika Challapalli received her doctoral hood signifying her PhD degree in electrical engineering from Dr. Steve Yurkovich, head of the systems engineering department and the Louis Beecherl Jr. Distinguished Chair, and Dr. Marion Underwood, dean of graduate studies
