In some universities such as Finland, a Ph.D. student who graduated will receive a real sword as a symbol of truth, purity, and sharpness of thoughts.

During Fernando and Tyler’s Farewell Party in May 2019, Dr. Jeka did a Conferment Ceremony with a Light-saber. Now the COBAL lab has recognized Fernando and Tyler as official COBAL Ph.D.’s.

May the Force be with you!!!
