Thayer School's annual Investiture ceremony, held the day before Commencement at Dartmouth, honors graduating BE, MEM, MEng, MS, and PhD students through the presentation of academic hoods, caps, and awards.

In addition, Thayer School traditionally presents its Robert Fletcher Award to a graduate or friend of Thayer School in recognition of distinguished achievement and service in the highest tradition of the School. The award is named in honor of Robert Fletcher, who was appointed by founder Sylvanus Thayer as the School's first dean and professor of engineering.
