Engineering Ring Ceremony
Saturday, May 11, 2013
Norman Worthington Conference Center
The Engineering Ring Ceremony (reservations
required), hosted by Saint Martin's University
Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering, is an invitation-only event
for graduating engineering students and their guests. A luncheon
immediately follows the ceremony in a large tented area on the campus
lawn west of the Grand Staircase.
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.
