(fanfare music) - [Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your spring 2017 Georgia Tech graduates. (applauding) ("Pomp and Circumstance" by Edward Elgar) (orchestral music) (piano music) ("Canon in D" by Pachelbel) ("Pomp and Circumstance" by Edward Elgar) (orchestral music) ("Canon in D" by Pachelbel) ("Pomp and Circumstance" by Edward Elgar) ("Water Music, Suite 1" by Handel) (orchestral music) ("Pomp and Circumstance" by Edward Elgar) (cheering) (orchestral music) ("Pomp and Circumstance" by Edward Elgar) (orchestral music) ("Canon in D" by Pachelbel) - [Announcer] Students, please rise for the faculty processional. (orchestral music) ("Rondeau" by Jean-Joseph Mouret) - Well, good evening. Will the audience please rise and remain standing for the posting of the colors and the singing of the National Anthem, which will be sung by members of the Georgia Tech Chamber Choir. ♫ Oh, say can you see ♫ By the dawn's early light ♫ What so proudly we hailed ♫ At the twilight's last gleaming ♫ Whose broad stripes and bright stars ♫ Through the perilous fight ♫ O'er the ramparts we watched ♫ Were so gallantly streaming ♫ And the rocket's red glare ♫ The bombs bursting in air ♫ Gave proof through the night ♫ That our flag was still there ♫ Oh say does that star-spangled ♫ Banner yet wave ♫ For the land of the free ♫ And the home of the brave (applauding) (audience murmuring) - Please be seated. Well good evening, and welcome. In addition to our students preparing for military service I'd like for us to take a moment to recognize the veterans and active services members in the audience. If you have served or are currently serving in any branch of the US military, please rise and let us recognize you for your service. (applauding and cheering) Thank you. At this point I'm pleased to introduce Mr. Dapesh Patel. Mr. Patel is a master's candidate in business administration, who will give us our reflection this evening. (applauding and cheering) - There we are. The graduates in this room are unique. We not only elected to go back to school but decided to go back to one of the most rigorous institutions in the entire world. Many of us may have already gone out into the world of industry, academia, or government. Many of us may have our homes and traveled to a new city, state, or even country. Knowing all this, why did we do it? What can I say to send off this unique group of people? Who is this group of people? That last question, I believe, is a great place to start. Today we have the Georgia Tech master's and PhD students from the College of Design, who are pioneering innovations in sustainable buildings. Yeah, give it up, come on! Yeah. (applauding) They're innovating sustainable buildings and cities. We have those from the College of Computing, who are, yeah, give it up again, let's go. (applauding) We're graduating. They're advancing wearables, robotics, and supercomputers. We have the students from the College of Science, discovering cures to diseases, solving mathematical theorems, and unraveling the mysteries of space and time. (applauding) And I'm not biased, but we have those from the College of Business, who are trying to solve the-- (applauding) Well. They're trying to solve the world's logistical problems, create social enterprises, and pushing the boundaries of big data. We also have those from the College of Liberal Arts. (applauding) They are paving the way in health care, economics, international relations, and public policy. Oh, and by the way, we have a pretty amazing engineering school, too. (applauding) Yeah. They are trying to solve every problem that plagues our society, both physically and digitally. What do all these individuals have in common? Yes, they are pretty smart, and yes, they are probably good problem solvers. But I see a greater commonality. All the graduates here today are troublemakers. (audience laughing quietly) Right? We always challenge the status quo. We learn the theory and the applications of our respective fields, not just to memorize facts, figures, or equations, but so we can rewrite those very textbooks that we learned from. Let's just think about all the people here today who defended a thesis. These people took a novel hypothesis, stated their findings, and defended their academic work in front of a panel of experts. They are the very definition of those who fight norms and venture to push boundaries. All the graduates in this room have always been, and continue to be, challengers. We challenge what the world takes as truth, what people say cannot be solved. We challenge the very foundation of our fields, but most of all, we challenge ourselves. We challenge ourselves to attain greater knowledge and to improve our skills. As we made that climb, we questioned where our foundations stood, where we were headed, and fought to push our fields where we thought they should go. But this graduating class is not satisfied with complacency. As we reflect on our time here, and dream of the future class of 2017, remember to never stop challenging the status quo. Never stop challenging foundational theories. Never stop challenging the experts in your field, but most of all, never, ever stop challenging yourselves. That characteristic all of us share is what made us gravitate to Georgia Tech, fueled us to reach this graduation, and will continue to drive each and every one of us to make our mark on the world. We are the scientists, mathematicians, engineers, economists, designers, business people and policy makers who will challenge the world into reaching its full potential. Thank you. (applauding) Thank you so much. - Great job, thank you very much, Mr. Patel, and good luck to you. - Thank you. (applauding) - So, I just found out about 30 minutes ago, that Mr. Patel had not told his mother that he was gonna be doin' that. And she's here with us tonight. So let... (applauding) Graduates, members of the faculty and staff, distinguished guests, families, and friends, it's my great pleasure to welcome all of you to the 253rd commencement exercises at the Georgia Institute of Technology. This weekend's commencement activities, we will recognize our spring graduates. This evening we'll celebrate more than 1,300 graduate degree recipients, as well as almost 2,200 undergraduate degree recipients in the two ceremonies that we'll hold tomorrow. (applauding) As we celebrate the successful conclusion of one chapter of your life-long education, it's important to acknowledge that you have not done this alone. With us today are many families, friends, and colleagues whose love and support helped make this day possible. In addition, with us this evening are faculty members who have guided and mentored these students, sharing with them their time, their wisdom, and their expertise, in order to help each and every one of them reach their fullest potential and achieve this important milestone. Would the members of the faculty please stand and be recognized? (applauding) While I could try to stand here and tell you how much this evening's festivities and your presence means to the graduates tonight, I think it means more coming from them. - It's been an amazing journey at Georgia Tech. A big shout-out to my parents for making this dream possible for me. Thank you so much, Mom, Dad, for your love and guidance all along. I would also like to thank my friends and my teachers for making this journey full of beautiful experiences, fun and learning. I finally got out, go Jackets! - On behalf of all the distance learning students, we'd just to thank our moms and dads for helpin' us through the process. Thank you. (speaking foreign language) Merci! - I'd like to say thanks to Mom and Dad, family, friends, and all the folks down at the bioengineering program. Hoo ha! - Ciao, Mami, ciao Papi. (singing in foreign language) - I want to thank my family, my wife, my parents for all the support throughout this year. It has been incredible. I also want to thank Georgia Tech. It's been an amazing journey. And I'm very proud to be a Yellowjacket. Go Jackets! (applauding) - At this time I'd like to introduce several members of the stage party, and I'd ask that you hold your applause as they stand when I call their names, and wait to recognize them after I've introduced them all. First, Mr. Barrett Carson, Vice President for Development. (quietly applauding) Not so good. (audience laughing) Dr. Archie Ervin, Vice President for Institute Diversity. Mr. Dean Sheehan, Vice Provost for Government and Community Relations. Mr. John Stein, Vice President for Student Life, and Dean of Students. Dr. Nelson Baker, Dean of Professional Education. Miss Rita Bukowski, Registrar. And Dr. Susan Cousins, Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Development, and tonight's mace-bearer. Dr. Cousins is celebrating her last commencement at Georgia Tech, before her retirement. We thank her for her 19 years of tireless service to Georgia Tech. (applauding) This is a momentous day for you as graduates, and for your family and friends who are sharing in the celebration of your accomplishments. You've worked very hard to earn your degree from one of the best institutions in the nation, and in some fields, one of the best institutions in the world. Georgia Tech faculty are engaged in research collaborations in more than 100 countries. The institute has global centers in China, Costa Rica, Panama, and Singapore. And for more than 25 years, Georgia Tech has had a campus in Lorraine, France. During that time almost 5,800 students have spent a semester or more at the Georgia Tech Lorraine campus, including both graduate and undergraduate students. Many of your have partnered with the potential to change our world. At Georgia Tech, we pride ourselves on being trailblazers that drive real-world change by embracing challenges, thinking critically, and developing innovative solutions, to some of the world's most pressing problems. Your Georgia Tech education is designed to prepare you to work collaboratively, to identify challenges, and to create solutions. And to be a leader in business, industry, government, and the communities where you will live, work, and play. Georgia Tech is in the business of creating the next: the next idea, the next technology, and the next innovators and entrepreneurs. We are empowering the next generation of scientists, engineers, businessmen and -women, architects and leaders in so many other fields, engendering in each of them the passion and the skills that they will need to go forth and design our future. You, as graduates of Georgia Tech, will be forever linked to this great institution. And we are looking for tremendous things from each and every one of you. (applauding) Our speaker at commencement this evening is Dr. Steve Wrigley, Chancellor of the University System of Georgia. The Board of Regents named Dr. Wrigley as the system's 13th chancellor, effective January 1st of 2017. In his role, he oversees 28 public colleges and universities with an $8.4 billion-dollar annual budget, and almost 49,000 faculty and staff fulfilling the teaching, research, and public service mission to over 321,000 students from across the country and around the world. He currently serves on the Georgia-based Alliance of Education Agency Heads, and is a member of the Georgia Wildlife Federation's Board. Dr. Wrigley served as Executive Vice Chancellor of Administration for the University System of Georgia from June of 2011 until his appointment as chancellor. As Executive Vice Chancellor of Administration he oversaw the day-to-day operations of the system's budget, facilities, information technology services, human resources, legal affairs, and strategic planning units. Dr. Wrigley formerly served as Senior Vice President for External Affairs, as well as Vice President for Government Relations for the University of Georgia. He also served as director of the Carl Vincent Institute of Government. Prior to his work in the University System of Georgia, he worked in Georgia state government. Including five years as chief of staff to former governor Zell Miller. During his career, Dr. Wrigley has worked on a number of key issues, including the creation of the state's lottery, and the Hope Scholarship Program. Georgia Tech students have greatly benefited from the Hope Scholarship. Since it began 25 years ago, almost 45,000 Hope and Zell Miller scholars have attended Georgia Tech, receiving more than $500 million dollars, $510 million dollars in financial assistance. Dr. Wrigley earned his undergraduate degree from Georgia State University, and his doctorate in history from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Dr. Wrigley and his wife, Lynn, have two children and reside in Clark County. Please join me in welcoming Chancellor Steve Wrigley. (applauding) - Thank you, Dr. Peterson. And thank you all for being here this evening for this wonderful occasion. I appreciate you not booing at the mention of University of Georgia, I appreciate that very much. (audience laughing) It's special for me to be here tonight, because my wife is here with me, and as Dr. Peterson indicated I became chancellor on January 1st, and was invested on Wednesday, a special day. And the thing I've discovered about being chancellor that's really nice is that I get introduced more, and people say the nicest things about you when they introduce you. It wasn't always the case. I am honored to be here and to participate in this wonderful occasion. To the graduates, congratulaitions. This is a great moment, a big milestone in your life, so please enjoy it. You will soon have a graduate degree from Georgia Tech. That degree reflects your hard work and your commitment to better yourself. It should also launch you on lifetime commitment to better our society. You have completed your studies and are thus prepared to tackle a very complex world. With your achievement comes great responsibility. Since we are on the campus of one of the world's great universities, with a deserved reputation for innovation in technology, I would like to talk a little bit about the interplay between technology and society and what our responsibilities are to both. The world has changed dramatically in the last 50 or 60 years. And you should ponder just how much more it will change in the coming 50 or 60. That may seem like a long time but it really is not. And it is during these coming years that you will be responsible for shaping the world. And make no mistake, you will be responsible and do have a role to play in what that world will be like. With the breathtaking pace of change in recent years, it is often difficult for cultural and social organizations to adjust. One observer has noted that technology ignites change, while culture preserves stability. The two are at war to some extent. In his book The Heavens and the Earth, Walter McDougall concludes technology is always disruptive and creates a crisis for culture. What I would like to talk about tonight is how it is up to us to navigate that crisis when it occurs, harnessing what we invent to get the good out of it and minimizing the bad. Take for example something as ubiquitous today as global positioning technology, or GPS, which had its origins with the launch of the Russian satellite Sputnik in 1957, but has only become a dominant part of our everyday life since the year 2000. GPS was developed for military use following Sputnik and was made available for civilian use in the late 1990s with the introduction of the first mobile phone with GPS. The Tom-Tom soon followed. And in the last 15 years, GPS has changed every aspect of our lives. Think how that one technology has changed so much about how we live every day. Not too long ago, if you took a driving trip, you used a paper map, which unfolded in complex ways and tore easily after a few uses. My Dad taught me and my two brothers how to read a map. That seems archaic, I know, but most of us today cannot go anywhere unfamiliar without our phones telling us when and where to turn. And it likely means dads won't be teaching their kids how to read a map. So I think we lose something there. We also lose something, I think, in that we pay less attention, sometimes, how to get somewhere. The journey is still important. When I was growing up my parents had no idea where I was or what I was doing. They could not call me or text me. If I needed to call them, I had to find a payphone, if any of you remember those. Now my wife can track our 20-year-old son's location in real time, wherever he goes in the world. That's more than a little scary, for him and us. He complains to me about it. As he has lost a little privacy and mystery, we have gained too much information about what the heck he's up to. As with most technology, there are trade-offs. The invasiveness of GPS is certainly balanced by the improved knowledge of weather and climate that satellites have brought us. Emergency responders can find the location of someone who is in need without even being told the address. Farmers can precisely water and fertilize crops merely by programming their laptops. All of these wonders are what Sputnik and subsequent technology have wrought. Most for good, but not all. And this is where we come in. We can decide what uses there are for what we invent. So be ever mindful of that. Technology has accelerated our lives in so many ways, especially in communications. In 1799, when George Washington died in Virginia, it took a week for the news to reach New York City. Can you imagine that? The most famous man in America died and it took a week for the news to travel 225 miles. Over 150 years later, within half an hour of the death of John F. Kennedy, two thirds of Americans had learned the tragic news. And a few years ago, when Michael Jackson died, the entire world heard the news within a couple of hours. In the intervening 200-plus years between George Washington and Michael Jackson, letter-writing as the main means of communicating over distances yielded to the telegraph, which begat the telephone, which led to televisions and live shots, and microchips and cell phones and now, yes, instant messaging, so that at hardly any time in our lives are we out of instant touch, unless we find a remote spot on earth without cell service or unless you drive up I-85 north of Atlanta. (audience laughing) This flood of technology has changed how families interact. Homes used to have a single television or radio, and as a family you would sit around and watch or listen together, somehow agreeing on what to watch, that give and take a routine part of a family's existence, largely lost. Now everyone has their own access to entertainment and news through what we call personal devices. It is a new concept. The emphasis on individualizing every aspect of society is freeing in so many ways, but also can be isolating and disruptive to socializing. Have you ever wondered why Steve Jobs called his invention an iPhone and not a we-Phone? It is designed for individual adaptation, but ironically has also promoted the greatest human interaction in history via social media. But we need to be careful our devices do not drive us to retreat under our headsets, enjoying one another's company only via text, or FaceTime or Twitter. We have likely lost something in the bargain, but have gained instant access to vast amounts of information and have the ability to communicate with anyone anywhere in the world at any time. One problem is the vast diffusion of information now makes it seem as if all information is the same. The same quality, the same accuracy, the same truthfulness. And that is not the case. So again, this is where we come in. Just because it is on the web, or someone in authority or on Facebook says it, does not make it so. So be wise about sources of information. There is a story some of you may have heard about a distinguished British scientist speaking to a civic group about the solar system and gravitational forces, and how the earth rotates on its axis. At the end of the lecture an elderly man stood up and commented, "You are a very clever scientist. "But everyone knows, "that the earth spins around on a plate "that is balanced on the back of a large turtle." The scientist chuckled to himself and then politely asked the man, "Well then what is the turtle resting on?" The man replied immediately, "You are a very clever man, a very clever man indeed. "But everyone knows, it's turtles all the way down." So be careful about your sources of information. Perhaps in no area has advanced technology played a greater role in changing society than in the spread of democracy. In 1960, there were only about 32 functioning democratic governments worldwide. Today there are more than 120. While the appeal of democratic values is well known, they existed for centuries. What changed? The ability to communicate to millions of people instantly can overcome any barrier leaders committed to authoritarianism wish to put up. It is simply not possible to shield citizens from ideas or to control information. With no monopoly of information, it is very hard to hide the truth. This is a blessing indeed of technological advances, being an enabler of the spread of good ideas. In addition, the ability to organize protests, to inspire response from thousands and millions of people is also instant. The ease of questioning authority and organizing against it, has transformed democracy and relations between individuals and big entities: governments, corporations, entire nations. The democratization of information undermines any elite effort to control what people know and think. Claims of governments can be refuted in real time. If an airline tries to pass off the aggressive removal of a passenger as re-accommodation, the entire world watches the video and sees something very different. So the democratization of information and technology is upsetting many, many aspects of the old order. Technology has been an agent of cultural and social change. Only three million television were in US households in the early 1950s. But 10 years later, there were more than 55 million. In the 1960s, television allowed people to get an up-close look at their country, and this awareness contributed to change. It is easy to ignore segregation when it exists miles and miles away, but much harder when pictures of violence that do not square with your beliefs about what America means are brought into your living rooms. President Lyndon Johnson attributed his downfall to the CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite's repudiation in early 1968 of the notion that the war in Vietnam was going well. The three major networks dominated the news then, which is hard to believe today. And Cronkite was the king of broadcasters. During one evening broadcast in early February of 1968, Cronkite opined it was time to negotiate an end to the war. President Johnson was watching in the White House and reportedly said, "If I've lost Cronkite, "I've lost middle America." Four weeks later, Johnson announced he would not run for president. It was a stunning example of how new technology can alter the social, political, and cultural landscape of a nation. Invention thus is an awesome responsibility. Rapid advances in knowledge and technology have altered everything from life expectancy to forms of government. Unfortunately these same technologies can be enablers of bad ideas and behavior, for displays of violence, for advancing hate, for destroying reputations. And this, again, is where we come in. Technology and invention are life-altering in every way. They change how we govern ourselves, how we understand one another, how we interact with friends and families. But we can be in charge. Saturday Night Live has enjoyed a revival recently. But I recall when it first went on the air in the late 1970s. There were a few smart skits called What If? One was called, What If Napoleon Had a B-52 Bomber at the Battle of Waterloo? John Belushi played Napoleon and was toured through the plane by the captain Dan Aykroyd. It was all hysterically funny, as Napoleon wandered wide-eyed through the plane, pondering whether to drop a nuclear bomb on the British and Prussia armies below. But beyond the humor, there is one great lesson from that skit. Someone had to decide whether to use the technology. We do not have to be at the mercy of what we invent. We can use advances to make our world better, as we have by improving many things, from farming techniques to spreading democracy. But the acceleration of everything can affect our judgment, our decision-making, and thus the quality of the world we live in. Sometimes we just need to give it a rest. So please do not email me, and then send me a text to tell me that you sent me an email. It is hard to imagine how much our lives will change in the coming decades. My plea to you is don't just let change happen to you or to this world. Seize it, help harness and direct it, so that you leave the place better than you found it. Remember the earth really does not rest on turtles all the way down. Congratulations to you all, and all the best to you. Thank you. (applauding) Thank you. - Thank you, Dr. Wrigley, for that message and for your leadership in the University System of Georgia. At this time I'd like to ask Dr. Rafael Bras, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, to join me at the podium. The most significant honor the university can bestow is the honorary degree. At Georgia Tech, we hold these degrees dear. Honorary degree-holders include the 39th president of the United States, Jimmy Carter; former Atlanta mayor Ivan Allen Jr.; former US Labor Secretary and senator Elizabeth Dole; business leader and philanthropist Bernie Marcus; and the Coca-Cola company board chairman and now former CEO Muhtar Kent. Today the Georgia Institute of Technology will confer its prestigious honorary doctor of philosophy upon Dr. John Burson. (applauding) (applauding) Dr. Burson earned his bachelor's in chemical engineering from Georgia Tech in 1956 and returned to earn his master's in metallurgical engineering and a PhD in chemical engineering. He remained at Tech as an associate professor in chemical engineering and a senior research engineer, and later earned his medical degree at Emory University. He set up his medical practice in Carrolton, and later in Billerica, because he saw a need for medical care in the area. Retired from the US Army Reserve, he returned to active duty. And in 1999 was named as a distinguished alumnus by Georgia Tech's College of Engineering. And entered the engineering hall of fame in 2007. It is our pleasure to present to Dr. Burson the honorary doctorate. And I'd like to read to you the citation. To all those whom these presents may come, greetings. Whereas John H. Burson III has spent a lifetime caring for others as a physician, at home and on the battlefield, serving four medical tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan after the age of 71, with honor, courage, and distinction, has provided exceptional leadership in promoting economic growth in the medical community in his native west Georgia, has tirelessly supported his alma mater through more than a half a century of volunteer service, and, along with his wife, Barbara, provided transformative philanthropic support for undergraduate scholarships and intercollegiate athletics, and has made a profound impact on all who knew him. Now therefore, we do hereby confer the degree of honorary doctor of philosophy, with all the rights, privileges, and honors thereunto appertaining. In witness whereof, the signatures of the Chancellor of the University System of Georgia and the President and Registrar of the Georgia Institute of Technology are hereto subscribed, and the seal of the Institute is affixed. Given in Atlanta, on this fifth day of May, 2017. Congratulations, Dr. Burson. (applauding) - Thank you very much. It's a great honor and a privilege to be here. I told Dr. Peterson I'm not much of a public speaker, but I thought I might leave you with an anecdote. On June the 6th, 1951, I was a 16-year-old and reported to Georgia Tech for the beginning of my Georgia Tech career. We moved into 16 Towers dorm and on the bed was our program. We were supposed to report to Britten dining hall in the ODK room. The relatively small group of students who started in the summer because we were co-ops reported to the ODK room. Dean Griffin and Dean Ajax were there. We sat there, getting our orientation into Georgia Tech. Dean Griffin made the famous speech "Look to your right, "and look to your left. "They won't be here when you leave. "You're lucky if you get out." So that's the first time I heard the term get out. So I'm delighted to be getting out again. Thank you very much. (applauding) - We've now come to the time that you've all been waiting for, the conferring of your degrees. (applauding) The moment of walking across the stage represents the culmination of much work and achievement for each of our graduates. I'd ask that each of you, after you receive your diploma, return to your seat and show your fellow students the same respect they've given to you as you crossed the stage. A note to our guests: in 2014, upon the recommendation of Provost Rafael Bras, we instituted a new Georgia Tech tradition of holding a separate PhD hooding ceremony before the formal commencement ceremony. Many of you joined us for this special event earlier this morning. Now we look forward to presenting the diplomas, and shaking the hands of Georgia Tech's newest PhD recipients. I'm pleased to welcome Dr. Rafael Bras back to the podium, who will now present the candidates for the doctoral degree. - Will the candidates for the doctoral degrees please rise? Mr. President, I have the honor of presenting to you for the doctoral degrees those candidates who have completed all requirements for those degrees. - Upon the recommendation of the faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and by the authority of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, I confer upon each of you the degree of doctor of philosophy, with all the rights, privileges, and responsibilities thereunto appertaining. Congratulations on earning Georgia Tech's highest degree. (applauding) - [Announcer] Doctor of philosophy Dr. Timothy Zuchi Chang. The doctoral adviser is Dr. Julie Anne Champion.

(cheering) (applauding) (faintly speaking) - Will the candidates for the masters of sciences degrees please rise. (applauding) Mr. President, I have the honor of presenting to you those candidates for the master of science degrees who have completed all requirements for these degrees. - Upon the recommendation of the faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and by authority of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia I hereby confer upon each of you the master's degree with all the rights, privileges and responsibilities thereunto appertaining. Please join me in congratulating these master's degree recipients. (cheering and applauding) Will the PhD student graduates please rise? (cheering and applauding) I want to extend my most heartfelt congratulations to each and every one of you. You've earned a graduated degree from one of the world's most prestigious institutions. Master's graduates, you may now commemorate your great achievement by moving your tassel from the right to the left. Congratulations. (applauding) Please be seated. Aw. (audience laughing) We're almost there, hang with me. Our Georgia Tech alumni are an extraordinary group of high achievers. To welcome the members of this graduating class into the fellowship of Tech, I'm pleased to introduce Miss Andrea Laliberte, chair of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. - Thank you, Bud. (applauding) It is my honor to congratulate you on receiving your degree, and to welcome you to the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. The mission of the Alumni Association is simple: to keep you connected with each other, with new students, and of course with the institute, and to advance the institute through Roll Call, our annual fund. I stand before you wearing the same gown I wore when I graduated 35 years ago. (applauding) Who knew I would ever have an opportunity to wear it again? Well I guess my mother did, 'cause she kept it in the closet for 25 years. At one point they were downsizing, she packed it up and sent it to me. While I could have chosen to wear newer and nicer regalia, this gown reminds me of the education I received and the pride I take in being a Georgia Tech Yellowjacket. When I think back to my graduation day, it was hot, it was in June, and my family had traveled from Massachusetts to celebrate with me. After that day, my focus quickly changed from studying and going to class to career and living my life. I was in Atlanta for a few years after college. I went to some football games, and I had contributed to Roll Call on a fairly consistent basis, but I didn't do much else Tech-related. However, my Georgia Tech degrees and education opened many doors for me in the years that followed, and prepared me well for success. My first job after earning my master's was with a small, 50-person consulting firm. For much of that time I was the only woman consultant. My Georgia Tech degrees gave me credibility with the other consultants and with our clients. It also helped that all the co-founders had some connection to Georgia Tech. From there, I went to work in the fashion retail industry. I was one of the few engineers at the company. Once again, my industrial engineering degrees from the number-one school in the country gave me credibility. Thank you, Georgia Tech. It wasn't until my 25th reunion year that I reconnected with Tech and its vast alumni network. I had achieved a level of career success that I had never imagined and I knew my Georgia Tech education had helped me greatly. So it was time for me to recognize this through my giving to Tech. Since then, I have become an active participant in Alumni Association programs, I serve on advisory boards, and I even have come back to campus as a professor of the practice. What stands out for me are all the amazing alumnae, faculty, staff and students I have met. They are passionate and care about Georgia Tech, its students, and its alumnae. There truly is a Georgia Tech family, and like any family, you get to decide how involved you want to be. My regret is I did not reconnect sooner. Most of you already have a connection to at least one other university. So you might be asking yourself, why stay connected to Georgia Tech? My answer to you is that there is an alumni network of more than 150,000 amazing people waiting to welcome you to the family. Giving to annual Roll Call is an easy way to stay connected. So because we want you start off connected, your Alumni Association has made a 25-dollar donation in each of your names to Georgia Tech Roll Call. Consider this your start of your giving habit to Georgia Tech. Being an engineer, I love equations. So let me share with you my equation for success. For me, the three key components: ability, opportunity, and desire or passion. Since you're graduating from Georgia Tech, you certainly have ability and you know how to learn. Universities and companies wanna hire Georgia Tech graduates, so there is and will be opportunity. And you're earning an advanced degree, so that tells me you've found your passion. You are ready to achieve extraordinary success. You are now a member of the Georgia Tech alumni network. Your achievements, now and in the future, will help this institution secure bright and diverse students, faculty and global recognition as one of the best universities to attend. Be proud to be a part of this legacy. I know I am. Once again, congratulations, and welcome to the alumni family. Thank you, and go Jackets! (applauding) - Thank you, Andrea. In closing I'd like to express my appreciation to Joe Hughes for announcing the graduates' names. At this time, the members of Georgia Tech Chamber Choir will lead us in the alma mater, followed immediately by the faculty recessional. The graduates in the audience are requested to remain standing as the platform party recesses. Then, I invite all of you to join me in singing of the best-known fight song in America, A Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech. Thank you, have a wonderful evening. (applauding) ♫ Oh sons of Tech arise, behold ♫ The banner as it reigns supreme ♫ For from on high the White and Gold ♫ Waves in its triumphant gleam ♫ The spirit of the cheering throng ♫ Resounds with joy revealing ♫ A neighborhood in praise and song ♫ In the memory of the days gone by ♫ Oh, scion of the Southland ♫ In our hearts you shall forever fly (audience applauding) ("Rondeau" by Jean-Joseph Mouret) ♫ Ramblin', ramblin' ramblin' ♫ I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech ♫ And a hell of an engineer (overlapping voices) ♫ Oh, if I had a daughter ♫♫ I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech ♫ And a hell of an engineer ♫ Oh, if I had a daughter sir ♫ I'd dress her in white and gold ♫ And put her on the campus ♫ To cheer on the brave and bold ♫ And if I had a son, sir, I'd tell you what he'd do ♫ He would yell,"To Hell With Georgia" ♫ Like his daddy used to do ♫ I wish I had a barrel of rum ♫ And sugar, 3,000 pounds ♫ A college bell to put it in ♫ And a clapper to stir it 'round ♫ I'd drink to all the fellows who come from far and near ♫ I'm a ramblin', gamblin' hell of an engineer - [All] Hey! (cheering and applauding) (laughing) (train whistle toots) (instrumental version of "Rambling Wreck") (drum music) - [Cheerleaders] Go, Jackets. Go, Jackets. Go, Jackets. Go Georgia Tech. Win. (piano music) (instrumental version of "Rambling Wreck")



Doyle completed his undergraduate studies at Princeton University in 1985, receiving a B.S.E. in chemical engineering. He received a M.S. (C.P.G.S.) in chemical engineering from Cambridge University in 1986, and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1991.

Doyle joined Harvard in 2015,[4] becoming the first John A. Paulson Dean.[5] A distinguished scholar in chemical engineering, he previously served as Associate Dean for Research at the University of California, Santa Barbara's College of Engineering, where he also served as chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering. At UCSB he was a founding co-Director of the UCSB-MIT-Caltech Institute of Collaborative Biotechnologies.

Prior to his appointment at UCSB, Doyle was a professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware (1997-2002),[6] and was a professor in the School of Chemical Engineering at Purdue University (1992-1997).[7] Between his graduate studies and his first academic appointment, he did postdoctoral studies at the DuPont Company.


As a scholar, Doyle applies systems engineering principles to the analysis of regulatory mechanisms in biological systems. His work includes the design of drug-delivery devices for diabetes (i.e., the artificial pancreas);[8] modeling, analysis, and control of gene regulatory networks underlying circadian rhythms; and computational analysis for developing diagnostics for post-traumatic stress disorder. Doyle also applies control schemes to nonlinear, multivariable, constrained industrial processes such as particulate systems and pulp and paper operations, and works on control aspects of sheet/film processes.

Honors and recognition

Doyle has received a number of honors throughout his career, including:

He has also held leadership positions in professional societies including the IEEE (as President of the Control Systems Society) and as Vice President of the International Federation for Automatic Control (IFAC), among others.
