Apple co-founder to get honorary Eng. degree

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is scheduled to give the commencement speech at Michigan State University this spring. As noted by the Detroit Free Press, Wozniak will share duties with TIAA-CREF president and CEO Roger Ferguson Jr.; Wozniak will take the stage May 6th at 1PM for the undergraduate ceremony, and Ferguson will be present at the 7PM advanced degree ceremony. The undergraduate event will take place at Michigan State's Breslin Center, located on campus at Kalamazoo Street and Harrison Avenue.

Both men will receive honorary degrees, with Wozniak receiving an honorary doctorate in Engineering. MSU will confer three other degrees during the two ceremonies. Each event is free to the public, and the undergraduate ceremony in particular is slated to run for one hour.
