    Join us in Jefferson City on February 7th to recognize all newly licensed P.E.'s in the state of Missouri.  After the ceremony, newly licensed P.E.'s and their friends & family are invited to attend a cookie and punch reception on the 3rd-floor rotunda of the Capitol. This biannual event is hosted jointly with the Missouri Board of Architects, Professional Engineers, Professional Land Surveyor, and Professional Landscape Architects.

    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
