Order of the Engineer Ceremony

March 30, 2022 @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm


The York College of Pennsylvania Engineering Programs will be holding their first Order of the Engineer Induction Ceremony on Wednesday evening March 30th. We’d like to invite you to join us!

The Order is not a membership organization; there are never any meetings to attend or dues to pay. Instead, the Order fosters a unity of purpose and the honoring of one’s pledge lifelong. The Obligation (http://order-of-the-engineer.org/about-the-order/obligation/) is a creed similar to the oath attributed to Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.) that is generally taken by medical graduates and which sets forth an ethical code. The Obligation likewise, contains parts of the Canon of Ethics of major engineering societies. Initiates, as they accept it voluntarily, pledge to uphold the standards and dignity of the engineering profession and to serve humanity by making the best use of Earth’s precious wealth. More about the Order’s history can be found at http://order-of-the-engineer.org/about-the-order/history/.

As part of the Ceremony initiates receive a stainless-steel ring (worn on the fifth finger of their working hand), a certificate, and pocket card. We will be holding the ceremony in the Waldner Performing Arts Center (WPAC) on the main campus of York College starting with a social time with cookies and dessert bars, starting at 5:45 and the ceremony itself will begin at 6:30 PM.

If you are interested in participating in the ceremony please RSVP to Dr. Scott Hamilton (shamilton@ycp.edu) that you will be attending. We ask that you bring a check made out to York College of Pennsylvania for $15 to cover the cost of the ring, certificate and pocket card. If you know your ring size, please include that, or we will have sizers available prior to the ceremony and will get a ring to you at a later date after the ceremony. if we don’t have a ring in your size on hand.
