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. Participants take the Obligation of the Engineer and wear a steel ring as a reminder of their commitment to high ethics and professionalism.

ASCE is an official Link of the Order of the Engineer and regularly conducts Ring Ceremonies at national events and in conjunction with sections and branches. For details on how to conduct a Ring Ceremony for your group, reference the materials listed below. You may also contact us at

If you plan to conduct your Ring Ceremony through the ASCE link of the Order of the Engineer, all correspondence concerning the ceremony must be forwarded to ASCE Headquarters only.
