At the Order of the Engineer Induction Ceremony portion of the event, students will receive a ring, and will be invited as a group to recite the Obligation of the Engineer (a copy of the Obligation of the Engineer pledge will be provided to you at the event). The Order of the Engineer was initiated in the United States to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in the engineering profession, to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer. 

Attention - Students Only:  This Order of the Engineer ring is FREE, however you must register and participate in the ceremony to receive it.

Please use the spray bottle provided to sanitize the sizer when finished).
