Order of the Engineer

The Order of the Engineer was founded in the United States in 1970, and the Boston University College of Engineering Link was established in 1985. The organization encourages graduating seniors to formally recognize their responsibilities to society by promoting ethical standards and professional integrity among engineers of all disciplines.

We invite all graduating seniors from the College of Engineering to demonstrate their pride and commitment to the engineering profession by participating in the Order of the Engineer Induction Ceremony on Friday, February 23, 2018 at 3:00pm. Seniors must visit the Undergraduate Programs Office to be sized for a ring, beginning in January. The fee for the stainless steel ring and a life-time membership is $10.
