Order of the Engineer

The Order of the Engineer is an association of engineers who pledge to uphold the ethics and excellence of the engineering profession. New members take the Obligation of the Engineer, a declaration similar to the Hippocratic Oath. Along with the stainless ring, the creed reminds them of their oaths and responsibilities to the engineering profession.

In its 50th year, the Order of the Engineer is symbolized by a stainless silver ring. Clemson University established a local chapter in 2015.

“You have your class ring which shows how hard you've worked at Clemson, but this is something special to also remind you of how hard you've worked to get your engineering degree. ”
