Professional Ethics Ceremony
Be part of a Fulton Schools engineering tradition.
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.
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.
