The 2024 graduation ceremony will be held at the Carolina Theatre of Durham on Saturday, May 4, 2024 at 5:00pm. The Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering will host the friends and families of our 2024 graduates. This is an exciting opportunity for our faculty, staff and students hosted at both the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and NC State University to come together to celebrate their joint accomplishments across our department.

Each graduating student will be given four tickets for their friends and family to attend.


Photos taken by Photo Specialties of each graduate will be available a couple of weeks after the ceremony, and samples are provided directly to the individual by Photo Specialties.

Additional photos of the ceremony will be provided free of charge by the department a few weeks after the event. Photos can be found on Flickr at the following account:
