New Graduates Take Oath of Honor

June 20, 2006 -- Jacobs School of Engineering students began their commencement celebration on a serious note with the UCSD’s inaugural Order of the Engineer ring ceremony.   About 115 graduating engineers took an oath to practice engineering with integrity and high standards, and placed a ring on the fifth finger of their writing hand to remind them of their oath as they sign engineering documents. 

“The ceremony was not only a symbol of how seriously our students take their engineering profession, but also of the incredible culture of leadership, teamwork and pride building among our student body,” said Dean Frieder Seible.  

The event, held on Saturday, June 17 in the Engineering Courtyard was initiated and organized by the Triton Engineering Student Council (TESC), which represents 17 UCSD student chapters of professional engineering organizations.  TESC plans to make this an annual event and include alumni who want to come back to take the oath.
