On April 22, 2016, the first ever Order of the Engineer induction ceremony took place at Auburn University. Members of Auburn Student Chapter ASCE organized and facilitated the event and invited any engineering students, graduates, and faculty to participate and take the pledge. Alabama Section ASCE President Sheila Montgomery-Mills was there to help conduct the ceremony and to give each new member their engineer's ring.
The Order of the Engineer is a collection of engineers who have pledged to uphold the values of ethics and integrity in their engineering profession. This is formally executed with a Ring Ceremony where one accepts the "Obligation of an Engineer" and is presented with a steel ring. This ring is to be worn on the little finger of the dominant hand to serve as a reminder of the pledge the engineer has made to his/herself and the public. The Order of the Engineer is a bond created between engineers who strive to uphold the reputable name of the engineering profession.
