Digital graduation ceremonies for class of 2019

CELEBRATION: The digital graduation ceremonies on June 25 will be a first for CPUT. CELEBRATION: The digital graduation ceremonies on June 25 will be a first for CPUT.

CPUT will be celebrating the success of hundreds of graduates during two digital graduation ceremonies later this month.

Graduation is one of the most important events on the university’s calendar but, like tertiary institutions around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the institution to find an alternative to a traditional ceremony.

The two ceremonies will be held on 25 June 2020, with the first scheduled for 10:00 and the second for 14:00.

Digital graduation ceremonies differ from virtual graduations by lending a more personal touch.

Individual students will be recognised by having their qualifications conferred upon them instead of blanket conferral of all qualifications.

“Actual ceremonies will be taking place but with no graduates or audience present. This is due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and a prohibition on events of more than 50 people.

“Students will be invited to upload a photo and personal message onto our portal. These messages and photos will be displayed on screen along with the name, qualification, and, where applicable, cum laude status when the Dean reads out the graduates’ name,” said Dr Garth van Gensen, Director of the Marketing and Communication Department.

Graduates and their families will be able to watch the ceremonies on several platforms. Details will be announced closer to the time.

A special Digital Graduation website will also be created that will enable the graduates to download the ceremony video, a personalised slide with photo, message and qualification and official graduation programme. More details will soon be announced.

Students can register their details at before June 15 or check your @mycput mailbox for an email from Marching Order. The support email address is
