The Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics will host NASA and the International Space Station National Lab on Thursday, April 25, 2019, for Destination Station, a traveling exhibit and presentations that highlight the activities and life onboard the ISS. Free and open to the public.

On Friday, May 24, 2019, family and friends will congregate at The University of Texas at Austin to celebrate students graduating from the Cockrell School of Engineering. The Spring 2019 Cockrell School Commencement speaker will be announced in early spring.

The Order is the roster of engineers in the United States who have participated in an Engineers' Ring Ceremony and who have accepted in public the "Obligation of an Engineer." The Ring Ceremony is the public induction of candidates into the Order of the Engineer, during which the engineer candidates formally accept the Obligation of an Engineer and receive a stainless steel ring to be worn on the fifth finger of the working hand as a symbol.

Held annually at UT Austin, Explore UT aims to inform students, parents, teachers and community members from across the state about the importance of the public research institution and higher education in Texas. The day-long event invites Texans of all ages to experience robust research experiences, hands-on demonstrations and experiments, and participate in the richness of the university's scholarship and knowledge.

Cockrell School faculty, students and alumni will represent UT Austin in a variety of panels, presentations and events in Austin's annual SXSW Interactive Festival, a weeklong event focused on emerging technologies across a wide range of industries.
