The Order of the Engineer is an association of graduate and professional engineers in the United States that emphasizes pride and responsibility in the engineering profession.

The first ceremony was held on June 4, 1970 at Cleveland State University's Fenn College of Engineering. Now, almost all states have universities with chapters, called "links", that host the Order of the Engineer.

According to Wikipedia, "During the ceremony engineering graduates take the Obligation of the Order. After each member takes the obligation they are awarded the ring while putting their hands through a big ring and having a member of the Order of the Engineer put the ring on the little finger of the dominant hand. Each inductee takes the obligation, signs a certificate of obligation and wears the ring to show their pride in the Order and as a symbol of their obligation to the profession and the public. Often friends and family join the new initiates for a time of celebration together after the ceremony."

Williams can be contacted at his office phone (505 277-0431) or through his e-mail at ess@unm.edu
