Camp 18 holds two Obligation Ceremonies per year. The spring ceremony is primarily for students graduating from the Schulich School of Engineering. Registration for the spring ceremony takes place through Student Services in the Faculty offices. If space is available, a limited number of practising engineers may also receive their iron rings at this ceremony.
The Fall Ceremony is typically held in November for practising engineers who wish to undertake the Obligation and receive their Iron Ring. A limited number of new graduates may also attend this ceremony.
