Order of the Engineer Induction Ceremony Thursday, May 16

Time and location TBA

Some professions have rites of passage marking one’s entrance. The Order of the Engineer ceremony is often considered the rite for engineers.

Formed to provide a sense of closure at the end of your engineering studies, the ceremony gives a visible means for students graduating from programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (AME, BME, CHE, ECE, ME, and OPE) to identify with other engineers. We invite students and their parents to participate.

Students can sign up to participate by speaking with their undergraduate program coordinator or the Dean's Office in Lattimore 301. There is a deadline of April 28.

Registration information will be posted as it becomes available.
