Engineering Ring Ceremony
Saturday, May 10, 2014
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.
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.
A luncheon immediately follows the ceremony in a large tented
area on the campus lawn west of the Grand Staircase. Tickets are
$5 per person and are
pre-sold in the Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering's
front office. Cash, check or credit card are accepted.
Rings are $15 each and must be pre-ordered.
Please order your ring by Monday, April 14 and
visit the Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering's front
office no later than Thursday, April 17 to have your finger
sized. Total payment is required at that time. Cash, check or
credit card are accepted.
