The third annual Iron Ring Ceremony took place on Thursday, October 12, 2017 on the Okanagan campus of the University of British Columbia. Promising to uphold the highest standard in the studies and research, a capacity crowd of first-year and new students in the School of Engineering filled EME 0050 to participate in the ceremony.
Harsh Gatora, President of the Engineering Society at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan) says the “ceremony is important to UBC Okanagan and the School of Engineering because they uphold the Code of Ethics and allow the engineering students to show engineering pride and integrity throughout their university and professional careers.”
The event is intended to create early awareness of the Engineering Code of Ethics, and let students know there is a certain level of professionalism expected from the moment they begin their engineering degree on campus.
