The State : Wozniak Awarded Degree

May 19, 1986

Multimillionaire computer designer Steve Wozniak finally got his college degree. Wozniak, who dropped out of the University of California, Berkeley, 13 years ago to co-found Apple Computer, received a bachelor's degree in electrical and engineering sciences at--and delivered the commencement address for--Berkeley's College of Engineering. In his speech, Wozniak said he has discovered that "issues are . . . more complex . . . the answers not so obvious" than they had seemed before his educational hiatus. Wozniak, 35, left Apple in a management dispute, and re-enrolled at Berkeley under an assumed name, he said, "to avoid scaring the students and professors."
