Trine inducts 10 into Order of the Engineer
Ten seniors in Trine University’s Allen School of Engineering and Computing were inducted into the Order of the Engineer during a ceremony on Dec. 8.
The following students participated in the ring ceremony in Fawick Hall:
- Ebrihem Al Namie, electrical engineering, Saudi Arabia
- Devin Harris, computer engineering, Vevay, Indiana
- Jackson Huckeby, civil engineering, Freeland, Michigan
- Anna Kmec, civil engineering, Carmel, Indiana
- Dhairya Mishra, software engineering, India
- Shauryya Mishra, mechanical engineering, India
- Gwen Pierce, electrical engineering, Ellwood City, Pennsylvania
- Quinten Prieur, civil engineering, Constantine, Michigan
- Kandra Tubbs, mechanical engineering, Berne, Indiana
- Yahya Zakariya Aleid, mechanical engineering, Saudi Arabia
The ring ceremony is the public induction of candidates into the Order of the Engineer, a fellowship of engineers trained in science and technology and dedicated to the practice, teaching or administration of their profession.
During the ceremony, engineering students are invited to accept the Obligation of the Engineer and a stainless steel ring is placed on the smallest finger of the working hand. The obligation is a formal statement of an engineer’s responsibilities to the public and to the profession. Both the order and the obligation serve to stimulate public recognition by engineers of two basic principles: that the primary purpose of the engineering profession is the protection of the public health, safety and welfare; and that all members of the engineering profession share a common bond.
Trine University conducted its first ring ceremony in November 1978.
