Fulton Engineering is committed to providing excellence not only at the university, but also in the work force. As a graduating senior you can join other engineering graduates, like Joy Marsalla, that have taken the Order of the Engineer Oath.

The Order of the Engineer, established in the United States in 1970, invites engineers to formally accept the responsibilities of a profession in engineering. With the help of the Alumni Association, ASU’s Engineering Dean’s Office, and alumna Joy Marsalla, the Order held its first ceremony at ASU in the spring of 2011 and has been growing into a treasured yearly tradition ever since.
Marsalla, who now works as an environmental engineer with Intel, first became involved with the Order of the Engineer after hearing about it at E2 Camp in 2010. “All inanimate objects that humans experience and use, from buildings to tiny microchips, are designed, built, sustained, or in some way supported by engineers,” says Marsalla.
“I feel that it is our responsibility as engineers to always remember the interface between our work and the rest of the world.” – Joy Marsalla, Fulton Engineering alumna
Those who take the oath receive a ring and a signed obligation certificate as visible reminders of their ethical undertaking.
Graduating undergraduate seniors in ABET accredited programs are invited to take the oath and join the Order as they transition from their academic studies to their professional lives. There are no membership dues or meetings, rather, the Order serves as a public affirmation and reminder of the ethics and obligations of the engineering profession.
“It is truly an honor for me to have taken the Oath at ASU and I hope that other young engineers will find inspiration in the Oath as well,” said Marsalla. “Engineering students should take deep pride in their profession and join fellow engineers in taking the oath.”
Registration will begin in early April. Contact Jade Silva at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
