Engineering Ring Ceremony
Saturday, May 12, 2012
Norman Worthington Conference Center
The Engineering Ring Ceremony, hosted by the Saint Martin's University
School of Engineering, is an invitation-only event for engineering
graduates, students and their guests. A luncheon immediately follows the
ceremony in a large tented area on the campus lawn between Trautman
Union Building and Kreielsheimer Hall.
The Engineering Ring Ceremony consists of a short
history of the Order of the Engineer, followed by the
blessing of the rings and the presentation of the rings.
Students then recite the oath of the engineer.
The engineer's ring is symbolic of the obligations accepted
by the wearer, and additionally serves to visibly identify the
wearer as an engineer. The ring is worn on the little finger so
that it will drag across any surface on which the wearer writes,
providing a constant reminder of the engineer's oath.
