Code of Honor
College of Engineering students take pride in their work and hold themselves up to the highest standards and dignity of the profession. At the end of every academic term, UTEP engineering graduates are inducted to the Order of the Engineer in a solemn ceremony. Together the initiates recite their obligation, a code of honor, to the profession.
I am an engineer. In my profession I take deep pride. To it I owe solemn obligations.
As an engineer, I pledge to practice integrity and fair dealing, tolerance and respect; and to uphold devotion to the standards and the dignity of my profession, conscious always that my skill carries with it the obligation to serve humanity by making the best use of the earth’s precious wealth.
As an engineer, I shall participate in none but honest enterprises. When needed, my skill and knowledge shall be given without reservation for the public good. In the performance of duty and in fidelity to my profession, I shall give my utmost.
