Alumni Traditions - Commencement 

In 2010, KAUST celebrated its first comme​ncement​ ceremony. At this historic celebration, graduates receiving their diplomas from the Chemical & Life Sciences and Engineering Division wore blue academic regalia, Mathematical & Computer Sciences and Engineering students wore orange, and the Physical Sciences and Engineering students wore green.  These colors have gone on to become a significant part of KAUST tradition.​​​​​
