Iron Ring


The Iron Ring is a ring worn by Canadian engineers as a symbol and reminder of the obligations and ethics associated with their profession. The ring is presented in a private ceremony called the Calling of an Engineer to engineering graduates. The ESSS manages the registration for Iron Ring for SFU Engineering students. Check below for the latest information regarding ring sizing and upcoming and postponed ceremonies.

Finding your Ring Size


During non-COVID-19 time you can come by the ESSS office to find your ring size for the little finger of your working hand. Alternatively, you can visit a local jewelry (respecting COVID-19 protocols) or do it at home using guides and charts online, such as the Ring Sizes website. Please note that Camp 5 uses the US/Canada measurement system, with ring sizes ranging from 1 to 12-1/2 in increments of 1/2 (i.e. 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, …, 12.0, 12.5). Please round your measurement up to the nearest size if necessary.
