For the sake of uniformity and fairness in ruling upon the eligibility of these applicants, Camp XIII has devised a procedure whereby participation in the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer is permitted only after the Professional Engineers of Ontario has established that an applicant's "technical" qualifications are equivalent to those of a graduate of a program of studies in engineering that has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.


The notices on the web for ring sizing & signing of the registrar are for McMaster undergraduate students only (unless otherwise stated). External applicants will be notified concerning the next steps via e-mail once their applications have been reviewed by the Camp Wardens (in February 2018).
