Order of the Engineer

Gonzaga’s School of Engineering and Applied Science held its fifth annual Order of the Engineer Ceremony on May 8, 2017.  The Order of the Engineer was initiated in the United States to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in the engineering profession, to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer.  By accepting the stainless steel rings that are worn on the pinky finger of the working hand, 30 Engineering and Computer Science students and two engineering faculty members pledged to practice integrity and fair dealing; tolerance and respect; and to uphold the devotion to the standards and the dignity of the profession. The ceremony included reciting the obligation to the profession, the presentation of rings, and a panel discussion on ethics and professionalism.  The panel included eight local civil and mechanical engineering professionals who shared professional experience and what being a member of the Order means to them in their practice.
