TecnunThe School of Engineering of the University of Navarra in Donostia-San Sebastián recently celebrated the graduation of its Bachelor's and Master's degree students at the Kursaal in Donostia-San Sebastián. A total of 350 graduates from both graduating classes and around 120 Master's students took part in the two events that took place in the Kursaal. A double graduation was held due to the fact that last year's ceremony had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.
The day began at 10:30 with a Mass of Thanksgiving in the Basilica of Santa Maria. The academic ceremonies of the Awarding of Degree Diplomas and the Imposition of Master's Degree Bursaries for the 2021 and 2020 graduating classes took place at 12:00 and 18:00 respectively. The events were held in compliance with the capacity set by the regulations in force in relation to Covid and the number of family and friends accompanying the graduates had to be limited. The events could be followed by streaming through the Tecnun channel on Youtube. Around 300 people connected live and more than 3,000 people watched the live stream over the course of the weekend.
