Message to the Class of 2020


On behalf of each and every one of our professors, instructors and staff, I’d like to take a moment to congratulate and recognize you – the more than 1,200 undergraduate, master’s and PhD graduates who have successfully completed your degrees in engineering, architecture, industrial design, and information technology this year.

We are extremely proud of all the hard work and dedication you’ve put forth over the course of your studies and are pleased to welcome you to the ranks of over 23,000 Carleton engineering and design alumni worldwide.

Each of you should be very proud not just of your academic achievement, but also your flexibility, resilience and determination in shifting to online learning to complete your degrees this past semester. I sincerely commend the Class of 2020 for adapting so quickly in the face of unexpected challenges and unprecedented circumstances – and we cannot thank you enough for your support as we navigated uncharted territory together.

Throughout your degree with us, the strong work ethic, resourcefulness and creativity each of you has demonstrated has played a key role in your success, and I’m confident these attributes will continue to serve you well throughout your professional careers.

While much has changed in our world over the past few months, I take great comfort knowing that the you – our next generation of problem solvers and innovators – are well prepared to help us overcome the challenges of both today and tomorrow, and to find solutions that will transform our world for the better.

I very much look forward to celebrating your success in person alongside family, friends, faculty and fellow students when circumstances permit.

Until then, well done to each of you! Stay safe, stay connected, and take care.

Larry Kostiuk
