AIChE Center for Ethical Practice is exploring programs to encourage and acknowledge the ethical practice of our profession for all AIChE Global members. As a pilot program to increase awareness of ethical practice of engineering, AIChE has been chartered to offer the Order of the Engineer (OoE). OoE is a nationally recognized organization "Upholding devotion to the Standards and Dignity of the Engineering Profession." An induction ceremony acknowledges a professional's commitment to ethical practice of their profession and will receive a steel ring. Wearing the OoE ring is an outward manifestation of the pledge to protect society and the public, and it is a foundational step towards professionalism. The goal is to bridge the gap between training and experience, and to present to the public a visible symbol identifying the engineer. The OoE is open to the following AIChE Members: all graduates of ABET accredited engineering programs, all licensed Professional Engineers, and Seniors who are within one academic year of graduation from an ABET-accredited engineering course of study. The induction ceremony is a joint project of the License and Professional Development Committee and the Center for Ethical Practice , and is endorsed by the Young Professionals Committee. If you would like to participate in the induction ceremony, please email darls@aiche.org to register and include your ring size of the little finger on your "working" hand (generally considered the hand you use to sign documents).


Paper abstracts are public but to access Extended Abstracts, you must first purchase the conference proceedings.
