Dear Graduating Student:
Every semester the College of Engineering and Computing organizes a special ceremony “Induction to the Profession” to recognize its graduating engineers and induct them into the “Order of the Engineer”, The “Order of the Constructor” or the “Order of the Computing Profession”, depending on your major.
The Order of the Engineer, Constructor, and Computing Profession is modeled after the Canadian Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer. The Orders were initiated in the United States to foster a spirit of pride and responsibility in their respective profession, to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer, constructor, or computing professional.
The Summer 2014 ceremony will take place on:
Monday, August 4, 2014 at the
Modesto Maidique Campus,
Graham Center (GC) Ballrooms
Refreshments will be served from 2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m..
Seating will begin at 2:45 p.m..
The main ceremony will start promptly at 3:00 p.m.
