What is a Convocation Degree Certificate?

VTU Degree Certificate or Convocation degree certificate is a certificate that certifies you that you have completed the Engineering, passing all the subjects, successfully. It is a proof that you are an engineer. You can hang your certificate, if you love, on the wall of your house or office to prove that you are an engineer.

When do you get Convocation Degree certificate?

If you have applied, you’ll get your Degree Certificate one year after the completion of engineering. Like, if you have completed the engineering in January 2000, then you’ll get your Degree certificate  only after January 2001.

In fact you receive the degree certificate during Convocation. Convocation is A formal ceremony at a college or university, as for the conferring of awards. Convocation usually happens on every Feb, mar, or April.

You have to ask your college or VTU about the Convocation dates, so that you’ll know when you’ll receive your Degree certificate.
