Congratulations Class of 2019

During Harvard University's 368th Commencement on May 30, 478 Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences students joined the ranks of SEAS alumni, a diverse and dynamic network of academics, scientists, technologists, and professionals that spans the globe. Three hundred nineteen students received bachelor's degrees, 82 students received master's degrees, and 77 students received Ph.D.s.

Meet a few of the newest members of the SEAS alumni community.

Electrical engineering concentrator Emily Dahl will pursue a Ph.D in electrical engineering at Stanford University. She hopes to continue focusing on research in neural signal processing. "I want to use electrical engineering as a lens to improve patient care," she said. (Photo by Eliza Grinnell/SEAS Communications)

After graduation, computer science concentrator Abdur Rehman will start a consulting career in New York City. The help and support of friends and classmates was essential for Rehman as he worked through challenging courses at SEAS. "The way the environment at SEAS is structured, it really brings people together." (Photo by Eliza Grinnell/SEAS Communications)

Montita Sowapark, a joint concentrator in women and gender studies and biomedical engineering, will pursue graduate studies in medical anthropology in London next year. She's excited to explore health from a more theoretical framework. "SEAS was the right fit for me because the flexibility enabled me to pursue a joint concentration. That has been instrumental in where I am now, and my path going forward." (Photo by Eliza Grinnell/SEAS Communications)

Mechanical engineering concentrator Robert Anderson with his senior thesis advisor, Dean Frank Doyle. Anderson was awarded a Michael C. Rockefeller Fellowship to study swordsmithing in Toledo, Spain for the next year. "My long-term plan is to eventually start an engineering company," he said. "I want to have a team of engineers, designers, and manufacturers who have the resources to identify a problem and then solve that problem to make the world a better place, but do that on a larger scale than I could ever do alone."
