Order of the Engineer

ME Graduating Seniors:

The Purdue Society of Professional Engineers (PSPE) is holding their biannual Order of the Engineer Ceremony, Monday evening 6-7pm EST, December 14nd, via Webex (see the appended message below for more details).  The Order of the Engineer is one-time ceremony offered to graduating seniors to enable new engineers to publicly pledge a commitment to high ethical standards and integrity in the practice of the engineering profession.  As such it is a ceremony honoring students’ transition to into their professional career.  A stainless steel ring, worn on the fifth finger of the working hand, serves as a symbol of this commitment to serving with integrity in their profession.

Over 30 years ago, I attended an Order of the Engineer Ceremony and to this day I have the signed pledge hanging on my office wall as a reminder of my obligation and responsibility as an engineer.  I encourage you to participate in this meaningful ceremony.  I have provided the official pledge statement below for your convenience.

If you are interested in participating in this meaningful ceremony, you will need to fill out the google form at the link provided in the message below.
