The Iron Ring is worn by many Canadian-trained engineers on the little finger of their primary working hand as a symbol and reminder of the obligations and ethics associated with their profession. The ring, a symbol that reflects the moral, ethical and professional commitment made by the engineer who wears it, is presented to graduates in a closed ceremony known as The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer. This ceremony is private: it can only be attended by students who have already graduated with a BEng at Carleton, those who are registered to graduate, and by those who have already received their rings.

Ritual of the Calling of An Engineer

Congratulations to all those who received their ring at this past Iron Ring Ceremony. The next Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer to be held by Camp 12 will be hosted by the University of Ottawa in Fall 2017. Registration for this ceremony will open in late September.  Students graduating at the end of summer term or fall term 2017 will be eligible to apply for this Ceremony.
