2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Cookie and punch reception following ceremony on 3rd floor of Capitol rotunda
3:00pm - 3:30 pm Order of the Engineer Ceremony
Graduate and registered engineers are invited to accept the Obligation of the Engineer and purchase a stainless steel ring (for $15). The ceremonies are conducted by Links (local sections) of the Order.
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 Obligation is a creed similar to the oath attributed to Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.) that is generally taken by medical graduates and which sets forth an ethical code. The Obligation likewise, contains parts of the Canon of Ethics of major engineering societies. Initiates, as they accept it voluntarily, pledge to uphold the standards and dignity of the engineering profession and to serve humanity by making the best use of Earth’s precious wealth
