Order of the Engineer

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. The Order is not a membership organization; there are never any meetings to attend or dues to pay. Instead, the Order fosters a unity of purpose and the honoring of one’s pledge lifelong.

The Engineer’s Ring in the United States is a stainless steel ring, worn on the fifth finger of the working hand by engineers who have accepted the Obligation of an Engineer in a Ring Ceremony.

Ceremonies have been held across the United States since 1970 at which graduate and registered engineers are invited to accept the Obligation of the Engineer and a stainless steel ring. UofL’s 3rd annual ceremony will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10th in the multipurpose room of the SAC.
