Order of the Engineer to be presented at Graduation!

Order of the Engineer

The Order of the Engineer is an association for graduate and professional engineers in the United States that emphasizes pride and responsibility in the profession. 

Before joining, members must take an oath to abide by a code of ethics. Members are given a stainless steel ring called the Engineer's Ring. The ring is worn on the little finger so that it will drag across any surface on which the wearer writes.
