ETC Class of 2019

On May 19, 2019 the ETC honored 75 students as we held the 2019 Diploma Ceremony at Heinz Field.  Following dinner, with fellow classmates, family, ETC faculty and staff the latest group of alumni received their Master of Entertainment Technology degrees from Carnegie Mellon University.

This year’s ETC Alumni Award winners Soo Jeong Bae (09) and Jeonghyun Junction Bae (08) gave the charge to the newest batch of ETC Alumni.  The ETC Alumni Award is given to honor alumni who exemplify leadership and innovation in entertainment technology fields through their engaging and inspiring work.

The ETC diploma ceremony concluded with the awarding of the Anne Humprheys’ Memorial Award, The Tornado Award and the Pausch Award.

The Anne Humprheys’ Memorial Award is given in honor ETC faculty member Anne Humphreys’ who passed away after a courageous battle with cancer in recognition of Anne’s indomitable character and the fact that she was an inspiration to all who knew her. The award is given to a student who has made the most out of live by living with passion on the moment, and has a focus on community building projects which betters lives for others and in doing so influences others to be positive. This year’s winners were Ridima Ramesh and Dustin Stephan.

The Tornado Award is given in honor of ETC Co-founder Don Marinelli. The award is given in recognition to the student who goes up against the status quo, the existing parameters and limitations of the entertainment technology industry and makes an impact. This year’s Tornado recipient was Yujin Ariza.
