Order of the Engineer and The Pledge of the Computing Professional

Be part of a Fulton Schools engineering tradition.


“Virtual” Professional Ethics Engineering Induction Ceremony

The Order of the Engineer and Pledge of the Computing Professional are rite-of-passage ceremonies for students graduating in engineering and computing science programs. The ceremony is intended to promote and recognize the ethical and moral behavior in graduates as they transition from being a student to a working professional.

Because of the COVID-19 issue we are now holding a virtual ceremonies: one for the Order of the Engineer inductees and one for the Pledge of the Computing Professional Inductees. Graduating seniors, alumni and faculty of ABET-accredited programs are invited to participate in the induction ceremony.  See the FAQs for more details.

 
Order of the Engineer

The Order of the Engineer is a commitment to uphold the Oath in engineering practice. ​The ​Order ​consists ​of ​individuals ​seeking ​to ​uphold ​the ​integrity, ​honesty ​and ​values ​all ​engineers ​should ​possess ​to ​better ​society. ​It ​is ​a ​lifelong ​commitment ​that ​begins ​with ​this ​Ring ​Ceremony. ​The ​ring ​is ​a ​symbol ​of ​the ​commitment ​to ​the ​Oath ​and ​is ​worn ​on ​the ​small ​finger ​of ​the ​working ​hand. ​ASU ​undergraduate ​students ​that ​will ​be ​graduating in an ABET accredited program ​are ​invited ​to ​attend, ​along ​with ​faculty ​& ​alumni who have never taken the oath.

Pledge of the Computing Professional

The Pledge of the Computing Professional is an organization to promote the notion of computing as a recognized profession at the time of graduation for students in Computing Science and related programs. The Pledge is modeled after the Order of the Engineer – a long-standing rite-of-passage for graduates from engineering programs. The Pledge of the Computing Professional is solely intended to promote and recognize the ethical and moral behavior of graduates of computing-related degree programs as they transition to careers of service to society.
