Class of 2021
CONGRATULATIONS ILLINOIS ECE GRADUATES
We can't wait to celebrate you and your accomplishments.
Here is where you will find all the celebrations, information, and more for the department's activities surrounding May 2021 commencement.
Complete the Illini Success Survey
Whether you have already accepted a job or graduate school offer, have plans to start a business, will be volunteering in the community or abroad, or are still defining your next steps, we ask that you share information about your post-graduation plans.
Completion of the survey qualifies you for a drawing to win a variety of prizes, including Amazon gift cards, Illinois business card holders, and diploma frames. It also provides us with critical information necessary for career and academic advising, student recruitment, and institutional reporting needs.
ECE Graduation Gifts
Although we can't celebrate with you all in-person, we want to share a gift with you.
To receive your gift you will need to 1) complete the Illini Success Survey and 2) fill out the grad gift form by the end of the day on Wednesday, March 6.
Gift pick-up will be held outside of ECEB on May 6 and 7 between 1 - 4 p.m.

“I was going to pass along some sage advice to you as you graduate; instead I'm just going to make this observation. Some of you were born shortly before 9/11, you lived through a major recession, and you're graduating during an unprecedented time where a global pandemic has cut short your final year.
If anyone is ready to take on the world - it's you.”
Sharon Hwang (BSEE '90)
President-Elect, Illinois ECE Alumni Board
