The Order of the Engineer is a solemn obligation to uphold the standards and the dignity of the engineering profession. It is an obligation to turn to practical use the principles of science and the means of technology...to serve humanity by making the best use of earth's precious wealth. The purpose is to stimulate formal public recognition by engineers in the United States of two basic principles. These principles are that (1) the primary purpose of engineering is service to the public, and (2) all members of the engineering profession share a common bond. Those that have taken the pledge are identified by a stainless steel ring worn on the 5th finger of their working hand.
This event is supported by the College of Engineering and the Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering Department.
