CEC Fall 2017 Commencement Ceremony


Every semester the College of Engineering and Computing organizes a special ceremony called the Induction to the Profession Ceremony to recognize its graduating students and induct them into the Order of the Engineerthe Order of the Constructor or the Order of the Computing Profession, depending on 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.
