Order of the engineer

Order of the engineer 2014 ring ceremony

The Order of the Engineer is a United States-based organization for graduate and practicing engineers that promotes pride and responsibility in the engineering field. It was influenced by the popularity of the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer, a similar but much older Canadian rite, which is now a common sight in engineering schools throughout the United States.
As an engineer, I can only take part in legitimate businesses. My ability and expertise will be freely given to the public good whenever it is needed. I will give my best in the performance of my duties and loyalty to my career.
Engineering graduates take the Obligation of the Order during the ceremony. After taking the pledge, each member passes their hand through a broad representation of the Engineer’s Ring. The Engineer’s Ring, made of stainless steel, is then placed on the little finger of the graduate’s dominant hand by a member of the Order of the Engineer. The ring is worn on the little finger so that it can drag over every writing surface, serving as a constant reminder of the engineer’s oath.

Order of the engineer ceremony

In the United States, the Order of the Engineer was founded in 1970, and the Boston University College of Engineering Connection was founded in 1985. By fostering ethical standards and professional competence among engineers of all disciplines, the organization encourages graduating seniors to formally acknowledge their obligations to society.
We invite all graduating seniors from the College of Engineering to attend the Order of the Engineer Induction Ceremony to show their pride and dedication to the engineering profession. The stainless steel ring, as well as a lifetime membership, costs $12.

Order of the engineer initiation ceremony

The Order of the Engineer was established in the United States to promote pride and duty in the engineering profession, to bridge the gap between education and practice, and to provide the public with a recognizable sign representing the engineer.
Cleveland State University hosted the first ceremony on June 4, 1970. Since then, similar ceremonies in which graduate and registered engineers are invited to acknowledge the Engineer’s Obligation and a stainless steel ring have been held throughout the United States. The Order’s Links (local sections) administer the ceremonies.
The Obligation is a creed similar to Hippocrates’ (460-377 B.C.) oath, which is commonly taken by medical graduates and establishes an ethical code. Sections of the Canon of Ethics of major engineering societies are also included in the Obligation. Initiates pledge to uphold the engineering profession’s values and integrity, as well as to support society by making the best use of the planet’s limited resources.
