Congratulations to BCT’s Class of 2017!

Congratulations to BCT’s Class of 2017!

Congratulations to all of our graduating students in BCT! We are tremendously proud of them and we wish them all the best for their upcoming professional life. As in years past, we couldn't only take a serious photo, of course… Please note: These group shots were taken at the CNS celebration and unfortunately not all of the students made it onto the picture. We also had several graduate students completing their doctorates and Master's degrees. Carl, Nariman, and Chris can be seen in the following photos, which also feature a cameo from former BCT faculty, Simi Hoque. For more, don’t forget to also check out our pictures from all of the commencement events on the BCT Facebook page....
