Congratulations to the CEAS Class of 2022!
On Friday, May 20, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) was proud to host its 60th annual commencement ceremony and convocation at Island Federal Arena on Stony Brook University’s west campus.
Immediately following Stony Brook’s main ceremony at Kenneth P. Lavalle Stadium, the convocation was presided over by Interim Dean Jon Longtin, Master of Ceremonies Robert Kukta, in addition to the Chairs of the nine departments within CEAS, Associate Deans, faculty marshals and staff from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
This May, CEAS proudly conferred nearly 1,400 degrees, the largest class ever. Total degrees include:
- Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science: 973
- Master of Science: 352
- PhD: 80
In his address to graduates, Interim Dean Jon Longtin advised students: “Now is your time to create, to discover, to experiment, and to explore. Your learning doesn’t stop when you leave us, so keep questioning everything! The world needs you, now more than ever. You are unique and critical members of this community - tomorrow’s builders, designers, inventors, engineers, scientists and makers. It has been our distinct honor to have helped you engineer your future so that you, in turn, may engineer the future of others.”
