Louisiana Tech University initiated 84 new members into the Order of the Engineer on May 15.

Louisiana Tech conducted its annual induction ceremony for the Order of the Engineer via Zoom. New members received their rings and an obligation to sign through the mail before the ceremony.

The new members recited the Order of the Engineer obligation to maintain high standards in the engineering profession. They then pledged to uphold the standards and dignity of the engineering profession and to serve humanity.
