Join The Celebration

To all Engineering Students, Faculty and Professionals:

In 2020, we marked the 50th anniversary of creation of The Order of Engineer. It was on June 4, 1970 when students and faculty of the Fenn College of Engineering launched a new organization committed to professional responsibility based upon each participants accepting an Obligation and pledging to a lifetime of commitment to the ethical practice of engineering and to uphold devotion to the standards and dignity of the Engineering Profession. Now, fifty-years since that first ceremony, The Order of the Engineer has established more than 300 Links (Chapters) in every State in the Nation and has inducted over a Half-Million engineers who now wear the Steel Ring to signify their unity and dedication to our great profession.

To commemorate this historic event, now two years after being sidelined by the global pandemic that changed the world, on April 7, 2022, The Order of the Engineer along with the Washkewicz College of Engineering at Cleveland State University (CSU) will be co-hosting a celebration to recognize 50-years (+2!) of accomplishments and growth of the Order from the original 87 individuals who first accepted the Obligation to today. The day-long event will kick off with an Ethics Symposium moderated by none other than the esteemed Art Schwartz, Former NSPE Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel, CSU’s regular link induction/Ring ceremony followed by a celebration banquet that will be attended by special invitees including members of our Board of Governors and Executive Committee, CSU Faculty and Staff, special invitees of CSU and The Order including members of the original 1970 class of inductees.

The Ethics Symposium is free and open to the public and will offer 2 PDH’s to professionals who wish to attend. For those that wish to attend the banquet at CSU, tickets may be purchased for the dinner (in advance only) however availability is limited.
