Good morning I’m Steven Glaser and I’m
honored to serve as faculty marshal for today’s celebration welcome to today’s
College of Engineering commencement ceremony honoring our masters and
doctoral candidates we are delighted to have you all here to share this special
day today’s ceremony is being webcast if you’d like to share the address with
family and friends it is engineering.berkeley.edu/begrad17 – everyone has already tuned in welcome to begin the ceremony we have
invited singers from UC men’s chorale to sing the national anthem please stand one day can you see by the dawn’s early
light what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming whose broad
stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight or the ramparts were so
gallantly streaming that leg was still there oh say does
that star-spangled Oh land of the free Oh thank you very much
please be seated this morning’s commencement celebration is devoted
entirely to our masters and doctoral candidates UC Berkeley is recognized as
a world leader in graduate education with more top-ranked graduate programs
than any other university in the world in front of us today we have nearly 700
exceptional individuals who have earned a graduate degree from Berkeley
engineering this year each of you deserves to be very proud of your
accomplishment out of respect to all our graduates
everyone please stay for the entire program to offer the first of what will
be many congratulations to the graduates I am pleased to present Shankar sastric
Dean of the College of Engineering please welcome Dean’s faster good
morning I say this frequently but every year this is my favorite day of the
entire academic year I know that I speak for my faculty colleagues in saying how
proud we are to played a role in preparing you for this day
in your graduate studies you have deepened your understanding of
engineering challenges and how they can be met through original research and
hands-on innovation you have contributed your own insights and discoveries to the
worldwide legacy of engineering knowledge we are proud to send you off
into the world as advanced degree holders from the College of Engineering
at Berkeley the best in the world the day belongs to our graduates it also
belongs to the families or with us here today and we congratulate you for
supporting the success of our students thank you now in true Berkeley style I’d
like to give our graduates one last assignment as you head off to further
accomplishment in the professional or academic arena I asked you to answer the
call of the citizen engineer I want you to use your engineering talents to
create better living conditions greater prosperity and a healthier planet for
all wherever you go remember that you will always be a Berkeley engineer take
your responsibilities seriously stay in touch and go bears it’s always one of the highlights of
commencement to introduce our student speaker this year I’m pleased to
introduce Christine Rachel Joseph who graduates today with a Master of
Translational Medicine degree Christine Rachel Joseph was born in Houston Texas
very considerately during the halftime of the Super Bowl
she has moved 18 times since then living in Georgia Connecticut Iowa Indiana
Illinois and Tamilnadu in India she completed her undergraduate
degree in bioengineering at the University of illinois-chicago
and moved once again arriving in Berkeley to chase dreams of
interdisciplinary innovation and warm February days in her time at Cal Rachael
has renewed a love for the outdoors rain or shine
till recently mainly shine and learned a lot about medical devices while she’s
not speaking at commencement ceremonies you can find her talking to her family a
friend and strangers on the bus she plans to stay in the Bay Area after
graduation and chase after some new dreams she graduates today from the
master of translational medicine program and is so happy to have spent some of
the most wonderful days of her life with her MTM cohort please join me in
welcoming Rachel Joseph as she speaks on behalf of the graduating class great thank you that was fantastic
hello everyone mostly you guys over there welcome to you all my fellow
graduates and all of your family friends supporters and adoring fans
here we are gathering the Greek about to conclude our time at Cal we’ve all
arrived here by complete chance to burden through blessings through lucky
coincidences of the people and things that make up our lives but we’ve also
all arrived here by sheer tenacity and hard work and steadfastly pushing
towards the next step in our lives everything tends towards equilibrium but
it matters how hard you push and somehow here we are
I arrived in California less than a year ago and everything has been absolutely
ridiculous since then in a lot of ways I still listed this campus as an outsider
I still have seven thousand more global places to try I’m so surprised by trees
I’ve never seen before in my life I felt to take breaks when walking up the
endless mountain this campus was inexplicably built on I don’t know if I
came in with a clear goal or if even now I know what I want to strive towards but
I know that I made the right choice coming here it wouldn’t have been the
same without me and it wouldn’t have been the same
without you the diversity of my MTM cohort is emblematic of the kind of
people drawn to grad school at Cal and you species MBAs mphs people practice as
clinicians nurses consultants professors engineer scientists business people
people who climb mountains and traverse desert stalkers and listeners and
thinkers and masters people from all around the world different paths and
different futures we all have many such cohorts in our lives the ones we work
with cry with laugh twist complain with but the ones we meet in grad school are
truly special such fascinating people that haven’t yet had their sparkle them
maybe you also found kindred spirits here or a love from learning that comes
from going up towers and through gates and under eucalyptus trees maybe you
found your trivia crew or fellow athletes starving artists board game
buds partying pals musical true for your fellow explorers maybe the things you
found came from elsewhere another campus another experience or just a good talk
on the bus ride home may be the best learning happened when you wore the
wrong shoes and forgot your umbrella and got completely soaked with rain or the
best memories came by the cold Pacific as you touched that sea water for the
first time or stood shivering in it and can still remember how that felt your
first time 3d printing or differentiating or frying an op-amp in a
class you loved or a class you hated in a project that succeeded or a project
that failed when you struggle to find the next step or when you persisted
we’re in the midst of some interesting times politically socially personally
the world we live in is constantly changing and in this connected
technological world everyone expects you the engineer to always be right but
looking beyond the technology the cut and dry feasibility we pass through
those seemingly unconnected realms true engineering is always at the core of
every single thing we do in our lives but it’s an within
greater environment of twisting twining factors that can’t be handled by just
one person or just one perspective no matter how different our projects or
theses there are more similarities in the process than we might have expected
in learning how to understand between and to communicate beyond I’m sure all
of you have experienced such beautiful side effects being an engineer is about
gaining the sense for what feels wrong knowing where to find a problem and
knowing how to find health and the vision and focus and stubbornness that
drives all of us will never be lost for stopping to notice the cracks the desert
and the bridges between now something on the audience may be familiar with math
but no matter how simple it might seem to multiply the hours with the number of
times that you’ve spent late-night lab and the incalculable impact that your
innovations are going to make some things are really just incalculable no
matter if you’ve just been here for one year or if you’ve been here for ten the
lessons remain the same you don’t have to know what you want to make of
yourself what you want to do is but you have to know that you want to do it
we’re walking into a lot of uncertainty and in a lot of ways the most we will
all have in common is this moment take a few seconds to really think about that
and take these seconds to really think about everyone who helps you along the
way again thank you to everyone here our supporters our families our professors
our advisors and to the Graduate graduates we grew together learn
together and change together after this we all scatter in completely different
directions but those moments that linked us and ground us and gripped us together
will stay with us forever Thank You Rachel and the very best of
luck to you I know you will make Berkeley very proud it’s now my great
honor to introduce Charlie Giancarlo who will deliver today’s commencement
address Charlie comes to us with more than 30 years of experience as a serial
entrepreneur investor and fortune 50 senior executive and the semiconductor
communications and networking industry’s most recently he was a managing director
and later a senior advisor at Silver Lake partners a private equity firm
specializing in technology investment before joining Silver Lake in 2007
Charlie spent 15 years with Cisco Systems as a senior executive serving in
a variety of roles and most recently as executive vice president and chief
development officer responsible for all Cisco product development over the
course of his career has also started a number of technology companies in his
startups and his time at Cisco he led teams for many firsts in the internet
and communication sectors including Ethernet switching Wi-Fi the internet
and Internet video and voice systems quite a list
Charlie currently advises many startups and entrepreneurs in the tech industry
and most recently the US Congress about patent law as recently as last week he’s
a director of Accenture arista networks Imperva ServiceNow and many private
technology companies he’s a proud graduate of Berkeley engineering earning
his MS in electrical engineering in 1980 he also received his bachelor’s degree
in electrical engineering from Brown where he is a trustee he also holds an
MBA from Harvard Business School Berkeley has been a strong friend to
Berkeley for 20 years for much of this time he has been an active and
invaluable member of our engineering advisory board here in the College of
Engineering as a generous advisor and advocate for the college Charlie has
been especially helpful in expanding our master’s and postgraduate professional
programs and that experience and that counsel is what makes him a tremendous
choice as your keynote speaker for today please give a warm welcome for Charlie
Jane Cocco hello graduates congratulations I am so
pleased to be here today is my first time back in the Greek Theatre in almost
30 years last time I was here was fantastic concerts when I was with a
student like you all kudos to you for all the hard work and the talent and the
achievements that have brought you this far Thank You Dean Sastry faculty
marshal Steven glazier parents friends and graduates for having me here to
speak Berkeley has given me so much in my life it shaped my life in ways that I
could never have predicted it’s because of Berkeley that I met my wife snout of
now 33 years long story I won’t go into that and Berkeley define
my career path but I’ve to tell you the truth and preparing for today I asked
the administration for their suggestions on what might be a compelling
commencement speech and I was told that you’d want to hear about my life story
how engineering has taken me to a successful career and how and maybe some
of my thoughts on where technology innovation is taking up and oh yes if I
could do it in like five or six minutes that would be perfect I almost feel as
challenged as defending my thesis well another major challenge in speaking
to that today is this in my early business career I made just about any
every mistake that anyone could possibly make I would not wish my early career on
any one of you I wish you a much easier time but I will tell you that Berkeley
prepared me very well for my first years at a school after obtaining my master’s
degree here and with three weeks of intensive German under my belt I left
for Germany to work for Siemens telecommunications I was 22 Footloose
and fancy-free and it was a great time of life and while the work was that
valuable certainly the cultural experience of living in another in a far
environment another country was absolutely foundational for me I found
myself in our challenging environment and especially a challenging work
environment and you see that I was 22 but the average German engineer
graduated 26 everyone in my group was at least in their early 30s but with my
Berkeley background I quickly discovered that I actually had the most experience
in our field than anyone else in the group and my first lesson there really
was the critical role of good leadership and I learned this through its abject
absence inside the organization after a few months of work on an important new
chip I had discovered a critical flaw the chip was just never going to work in
practice and like any good engineer I diagnose the problem and came up with a
workable new architecture the problem was solved right well no the view by the
group was that it couldn’t the chip couldn’t possibly be flawed because
management reviewed it and approved it and what could a 22 year old kid know it
required many challenging months of convincing the team and management in a
foreign culture in a foreign language to recognize the problem and change the
design but by focusing on what mattered most which was ultimate success of the
project I persevered leading to a successful first product Peter Drucker
once said he’s a just amuse if you will of great business thinking that most of
what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get
their work done here it was in action what I learned that Siemens was focused
on the ultimate goal not on getting a not on bidding along with the crowd and
also leadership manner matters after Siemens I attended a well-known Business
School in the East Coast and that was when my career went downhill newly armed with what I learned at
school I started my first company at 27 I made many many mistakes really all the
mistakes you could possibly make one of the biggest was locating the company
near my home in New Jersey needless to say New Jersey in the 80s
was not an environment conducive to the support of high-tech companies probably
like you my friends and my family had little to no idea what I did something
to do with computers but neither did anyone else in New York in New Jersey in
any social gathering when someone asked what I did for a living it was
absolutely the shortest conversation in the room what do you do well I started a
startup in data communications what’s what’s that
well we’re building products to enable computers to talk to one another why
would you want to do that how about those Yankees
my brother-in-law a professor at Princeton in plasma physics focused on
nuclear fusion told me years later that he had been very concerned for me as he
had no no idea how I was going to make a living in the future after three years
of hard work and many mistakes the company mercifully failed in the stock
market crash of 1987 I had the wrong location the wrong team the wrong
customer at the wrong timing really the wrong everything one VC who I will not
name said he had never seen anyone with so much potential fall so far so fast in
all his life Thomas Edison once said I didn’t fail I
just discovered 10,000 ways not to make a light bulb
well I discovered a thousand ways not to run a startup undeterred and perhaps
just stubborn I started another company in the same field in 1988 but this time
in Redwood City California I was supported by my wife viola that’s code
for financially supported and three experienced colleagues that fully
believed in the new plan we built a great team people who have become
lifelong friends we delivered our first product in 1991 to companies such as
General Electric Citibank American Airlines Shell Oil and oh yes
several small companies named uu net psi net and we’ll tell and you may not
recognize them today but if you were wondering they were the first service
providers for the then pre commercial internet and you see at that time the
backbone speed of the internet was one and a half megabits all of the Internet
traffic in the United States flute had less bandwidth and you have
going to your home today our products increased that by a factor of 100 250
megabits what I learned from this is that
partners are important and a great team even more so I also learned 500 ways not
to run a company I was improving we sold that company in
1993 and I soon joined a failed startup as its head of products armed with my
understanding of the technology in the industry
I knew beyond doubt that this in this new company we can make the product in
the company successful and we created the world’s first Ethernet switch which
is for those of you in the audience the backbone of the internet today and we
sold this company to Cisco in 94 and what I learned from this is it’s good to
have experience and even better to have the wind at your back at Cisco we had a
great team and again the wind at our back and by this point 1995 we knew that
the internet would take over all communications and change the world as
we knew it and we were among very few at this time
who actually believed that Alan Kay once said that perspective is worth ad IQ
points it wasn’t that we were smarter we just had unique perspective we were on a
mission to change the way the world worked lived and played we created a
large number of firsts during the 90s and tooth and the early 2000s we beat
Moore’s law tripling internet speed every two years and as the Dean
mentioned we invented a number of first in the industry including the first
Wi-Fi the first voiceover IT first high-speed access to homes and the first
high-definition video systems over IT I remember speaking to a reporter in the
late 90s I told him that the internet was much more important than anything he
was reporting on the Gulf War by the way that was the first one at the time and
more important than ever than the sum total of every issue they were reporting
on because like the printing press it was going to affect the world for
decades of not centuries and in very fundamental ways I have to say that at
the time he still didn’t believe it looking back the things we created are
not the things that I remember most fondly I remember the joy of being part
of a great team of being part of an important mission of the friends I made
I remember the challenge of overcoming great adversity during the crash of 2001
and the joy of mentoring and leading an incredible group of dedicated passionate
people what I learned from my time at Cisco is this that the world is built by
missionaries not mercenaries now these last few minutes I focused on technology
in business as might be appropriate for today but everything in one’s work life
and career Falls to insignificance compared with the joy and the
satisfaction of a happy home community and good friends that’s what constitutes
real success in life I’m blessed to be married to my best friend with three
wonderful children and a large extended family and they’re the core and the
strength of my life I took the family on holiday some years
ago one day we went out for a sale we stopped it in Island we had lunch we
went for a swim and we’re headed back to port my 13 year old son you’ll you’ll
recognize this at 13 year olds often do said dad are we there yet my response
was yes Andrew we’re there there’s no better place to be than where we are
right now a few thoughts for you as you go out into the world don’t be in a
hurry to get somewhere else life is about enjoying the now failure
is a necessary path to success one learns most from failure take the time
to learn from your failures and even more importantly learn from other
people’s failures it’s much cheaper one area where you must never fail however
is in ethics and integrity you will be tested by guarantee you everyone is and
it usually starts with a small compromise you can recover repeatedly
from business failures but not from failures in integrity if you want to
change the world you need to understand the world you know this in science but
it’s also true for business and true for society always be a student of how the
world works realize that success always takes a team and choose your team
members to fill in for your weaknesses and welcome constructive conflict be
humble Mark Twain also said it ain’t what you
don’t know that gets you in trouble it’s what you absolutely know for sure that
just ain’t so and finally have empathy for others while life’s may feel like a
challenge to you now just imagine how much more challenging it is for those
without your gifts and without the good fortune that you’ve had that’s gotten
you to this point finally Drucker said the best way to
predict the future is to invent it you will be inventing our future there are
things that I can predict for you today with absolute confidence whatever doubts
you may have each of you will be successful you will accomplish important
things and you will be leaders in your respective fields because in 25 years
the world will be yours most of those that you look upon the state that you
look upon on the stage and all of those who leave the world today will have
moved on and you will be the ones in positions of leadership and authority if
you understand this then you understand that there’s only one thing to worry
about and that is how you will do your best to achieve what you want to
accomplish and to create a prosperous peaceful and civil world my sincere wish
to you all is that you live a happy and purposeful life one filled with rich
experiences love and satisfaction and that decades from now you come back to
Berkeley to help the next generation of great leaders to achieve their dreams
