Ring Application

In addition to Student Candidates graduating from an accredited Canadian Engineering undergraduate program, there are other individuals that may be qualified to participate in The Ritual of The Calling of an Engineer at Camp 15, Waterloo and receive an iron ring as a symbol to the wearer of the ring of the Obligation made during the Ritual:


You may be eligible to participate as an “Other Candidate” by virtue of your academic qualifications or provincial licensing body membership.  Included below are the qualification requirements for participation in the ceremony wherein you will make an obligation and receive a ring as a symbol to you of that obligation.


Qualification Requirements for Other Candidates to attend the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer


All 27 Camps across Canada adhere to a common academically based eligibility criterion for an engineer to be obligated (receive a ring), namely, completion of an accredited Canadian engineering degree or its deemed equivalent.    Coincidentally, this also happens to be the same as the academic requirement for professional registration with one of the provincial or territorial licensing bodies as a P.Eng.


Undergraduate “Student Candidates” from an accredited Canadian engineering undergraduate program are automatically qualified and invited to participate in the Ritual.   “Other Candidates” are also invited to participate in the Ritual and thereby receive the Iron Ring provided those “Other Candidates” have met one or more of the following requirements:  

  1. Candidates who have successfully completed a CEAB (Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board) accredited engineering program from a Canadian University or College, OR

  2. Candidates who have confirmation of having met the academic requirements for licensure by a provincial or territorial regulator of professional engineers.


Application Documentation Required


To participate as an Other Candidate, you should submit your personal letter of application to the Admissions Committee for Camp 15, at the address noted below. This must be received by the Committee, no later than 3 weeks before a Ceremony Event Date.

  • Current postal address for home and business, including email address(es);

  • Proof of completion of a bachelors of engineering program at an accredited Canadian institution, including dates and degree(s) obtained (include copies) or,

  • Membership(s) if any, in a provincial licensing body including registration number as P.Eng/ing or letter.
