Order of the Engineer
“Upholding Devotion to the Standards and Dignity of the Engineering Profession”
The College of Engineering is excited to announce the establishment of a new charter, The 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. Candidates are inducted into the Order of the Engineer through a Ring Ceremony where they formally accept the Obligation of an Engineer and receive a stainless steel ring to be worn as a symbol. 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 Order of The Engineer is for engineers who will receive a degree in the following majors: Biological Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. Engineering graduate students or graduate students with an undergraduate engineering degree are also eligible to participate.
Every Fall and Spring semester the CoE will host a Ring Ceremony for any graduating students (Summer graduates can participate in the Spring ceremony) who wish to be inducted. There were two ceremony options this semester. The first ceremony was held on Monday, April 16th from 6:30-7:30pm in Room 1100 of Patrick F. Taylor Hall. The second ceremony was held on Tuesday, April 17th from 6:30-7:30pm in Room 1100 of Patrick F. Taylor Hall. The event was open to the public and hosted by the Louisiana Engineering Society and the LSU College of Engineering.
