Five seniors in Trine University’s Allen School of Engineering and Computing were
inducted into the Order of the Engineer during a ceremony on Dec. 7.
The following students participated in the ring ceremony in Fawick Hall:
- Abdullah Alhosawi, a chemical engineering major from Saudi Arabia
- Mishari Altammami, a mechanical engineering from Saudi Arabia
- Arizona Lenski, a civil engineering major from Merrillville, Indiana
- Mariah Rodriguez, a civil engineering major from Long Beach, California
- Ryan Wisman, a civil engineering major from Bronson, Michigan
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.
