Dr. Peter Delfyett was selected to speak at the graduation ceremony for the Spring 2013 Commencement of The College of Arts & Humanities, and The College of Engineering & Computer Science. He was selected as a way to mark the 50th Anniversary of UCF. He was the first faculty member from UCF’s faculty presenting a commencement speech in over 40 years.

In his introduction, President Hitt described Delfyett as an inspiration to a new generation of scientists: “He works with young researchers in his lab to help them develop the skills necessary to become leaders in the field." In recognition for his outstanding mentorship of these young researchers, Delfyett is the recipient of the 2013 UCF Award of Faculty Excellence in Mentoring Doctoral Students. He also works with middle and high school students to show them that jobs in science are a fun and exciting career choice.
