Ethics and Professionalism
The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) Code of Ethics states, “Engineering is an important and learned profession. As members of this profession, engineers are expected to exhibit the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Engineering has a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all people. Accordingly, the services provided by engineers require honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity, and must be dedicated to the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare. Engineers must perform under a standard of professional behavior that requires adherence to the highest principles of ethical conduct.”
The mission of the college is to graduate innovative engineers who solve technological challenges to meet societal needs.
Every semester the College of Engineering offers a special ceremony called the Induction to the Profession Ceremony to recognize its graduating students and induct them into the Order of the Engineer, the Pledge of the Computing Professional and Order of Engineering Technologist, based on their majors.
Please note that this is a separate ceremony from commencement.
