Our next Iron Ring Ceremony will be held on March 16, 2019.

The March 16 Iron Ring Ceremony is primarily for the 2019 graduating class of the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary.

Students graduating this spring MUST wait for instructions from the University regarding their eligibility for the Iron Ring before attempting to register.


The March 16 ceremony is currently full for practicing engineers.  If you wish to be added to the waiting list for practicing engineers, please email camp18@ironring.ca.  There will be another ceremony on November 16, primarily for practicing engineers.

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.

To attend an obligation ceremony, Practicing Engineers must meet the following criteria:

  1. Completion of a CEAB accredited engineering degree, or
