The Spring 2019 Iron Ring Ceremony will be held on Saturday, March 16th at 2pm. 

Registration for this ceremony will open January 31st.


The Iron Ring is given to all engineering graduates in Canada as part of The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer, sometimes referred to as the Iron Ring Ceremony. The ring is a symbol and reminder to graduates of their ethical obligations as practicing engineers.

The Society partners with Iron Ring Camp 23 to host Iron Ring ceremonies at the University of Victoria twice a year, March and November.
