This memorable ceremony publicly inducts engineer candidates, including graduating seniors, alumni and faculty, into the Order of the Engineer, a prestigious organization recognized across the United States and Canada for fostering a spirit and pride in the engineering profession. During the ceremony, engineer candidates will publicly accept the "Obligation of the Engineer," a formal statement outlining an engineer's responsibilities to the public and to the profession. Candidates will also receive a stainless steel ring to be worn on the 5th finger of the working hand, symbolizing their pledge to uphold the standards, ethics, and dignity of the engineering profession. Although the organization is governed by "Links of the Order," a local board established by universities, engineering societies and government engineering organizations, the ceremony itself will be conducted by the Engineering Alumni Society at UCI.

All engineering alumni are welcome to attend this exciting event, co-sponsored by the Engineering Alumni Society, the Engineering Student Council and the UCI Alumni Association.

The Order of the Engineer is unlike any other organization because there are no meetings to attend, nor dues to pay. The primary purpose of the Order is to unite engineers under a common bond and to publicly recognize their commitment to serving the public.

The first Engineer's Ring Ceremony in the United States was conducted in 1970. For more information, please visit To RSVP, please call (949) 824-8546 or email
