Congratulations to the Class of 2022


The department is extremely proud of all of our students and would like to honor this year’s graduates! We were happy to have graduation celebrations in-person this year. Nothing beats the energy and excitement of commencement day!

During Class Day, awards were given to students who excelled in academics, students with independent research projects, and to those with outstanding performance in teaching and services to the department. The list of CS awardees is in this year’s graduation handout.

This year two new department awards were introduced, the Behring Foundation Award and the Davide Giri Memorial Prize. The Behring Foundation Award is given to excellent CS students who have lived, worked, or studied in Brazil or other Latin American countries.

The Davide Giri Memorial Prize will be awarded annually to a graduate student in Computer Science who has combined excellence in research results with continued outstanding efforts to promote research collaboration. The prize was established in memory of Davide Giri (PhD ’22), who promoted research collaboration in an exemplary way as part of his doctoral studies while excelling as a researcher.

The CS department gave out the awards to graduates after the University’s commencement ceremony. Below are photos from the department’s graduation celebration.
