UW CSE awards a record 391 degrees


14 of UW CSE’s 23 2016 Ph.D. graduates

UW CSE awarded a record 391 degrees at our department graduation ceremony on Friday evening. (We are rapidly growing toward a total of 460 degrees per year, and hope to be funded to grow to 600 degrees per year – roughly double the number of just two years ago! An additional building is part of the plan.)

256 Bachelors degrees were awarded in Computer Science and Computer Engineering. Thirty percent of the Computer Science Bachelors recipients were women – not nearly at parity, but double the national average for our peers.

112 Masters degrees were awarded: 49 in our part-time evening/distance Professional Masters Program, and 63 to full-time students.

23 Ph.D.s were awarded.

At the ceremony:

  • Ruth Anderson – a 2006 UW CSE Ph.D. – received the ACM Student Chapter Undergraduate Teaching Award.
  • Bran Amour Hagger received CSE’s Undergraduate Service Award.
  • Darby Losey received CSE’s Undergraduate Honors Thesis Award.
  • Viktor Farkas and Krittika D’Silva received CSE’s Outstanding Computer Science Senior Award and Outstanding Computer Engineering Senior Award, respectively.
  • The Bob Bandes Memorial Excellence in Teaching Award recognized graduate student teaching assistants Adrian Sham and Nick Shahan, and undergraduate student teaching assistants Michael Lee and Melissa Galloway. Honorable mentions went to undergraduate student TAs Megan Hopp and Chloe Lathe.
  • Albert Greenberg (Ph.D. 1983) and Stefan Savage (Ph.D. 2002) received this year’s CSE Alumni Achievement Awards.

Congratulations one and all!
