Iron Rings

Iron Ring Replacements

If you are an alumnus of Kipling Camp #4 (Saskatoon), and you've lost or damaged your ring or the old one no longer fits comfortably, a replacement can be ordered.

An email will result in an autoreply that will list the information that will help us find and verify your obligation number and process your request for a replacement.  It will also include payment options and instructions. For reference, the information needed will generally include:

  • Full name (at Obligation; please note any changes)
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Year of ceremony
  • Discipline
  • Ring size

Rings cost $20.00 Canadian. Your ring will be mailed to you once payment is received. (In Saskatoon, replacement rings can be purchased in person by contacting current Camp Secretary, Denard Lynch, P.Eng., in advance by calling 306-966-5473.  Office: 3B11, Engineering Building, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon.)

Payments and correspondence can be mailed to:

Kipling Camp #4
P. O. Box 22036
Saskatoon, SK  S7H 5P1

Note: Electronic correspondence and payments are preferred and can be handled more quickly. This service is provided by volunteers; we appreciate your patience while we process your order.

New Rings: The Iron Ring Ceremony

To obtain an iron ring initially, qualified candidates must be deemed worthy, and participate in an iron ring ceremony called "The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer".  Kipling Camp #4 generally conducts ceremonies twice per year; in the spring and the fall.  

Note: This information is provided as a courtesy to our graduates. The College of Engineering and the Corporation of the Seven Wardens Inc./Société des Sept Gardiens Inc. are independent bodies.

Support the College

Why not direct your support to where it all began? As a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, you surely have fond memories of your experience in your college. The College of Engineering values the strong support of its donors. Choose to make your impact in an area that interests you.

We are currently raising funds for the following specific projects:

  • College of Engineering Student Support Fund
Donations to the College of Engineering Student Support Fund will go directly to enhancing the College of Engineering's facilitated study sessions, which are designed to support and supplement students' first-year course work. Available to all first-year engineering students to help them through the difficult transition to first-year engineering, these study sessions are part of the college's ongoing commitment to student success.
  • Engineering Advancement Trust (EAT)

The Engineering Advancement Trust (EAT) was created in 1986 to establish a source of funding to maintain the currency of the College’s undergraduate program and provide assistance with College and student initiatives.  The EAT serves as the College’s general trust where all donations through the Annual Fund or the Calgary Campaign are directed, unless otherwise designated by the donor. Traditionally the College uses these funds to upgrade and replace equipment in the undergraduate student labs but funds can be directed to where they are needed most.  The EAT is administered by a Board of Trustees comprised of alumni from college of engineering. Each member is appointed by the President of the University, under recommendation of the Dean.

Fore more information, please visit EAT 2012 Funding Decisions.

  • Dean's Fund

The Engineering Dean’s Fund was created in 1998 with a gift of $50,000 from an anonymous donor. It was the donor’s wish that the gift be used as a ‘matching challenge’ to encourage additional contributions to this fund from other donors. The long term objective is to grow this Fund to $1M dollars in order to create a permanent source of funding to support the highest priority needs of the college.

In addition to contributing to the endowment portion of the Dean’s Fund, donations have also been used to provide immediate support to our engineering students. In 2003, the College entered into a formal agreement with the Saskatoon Engineering Students’ Society (SESS) for that purpose. Each year the College provides financial support from the Dean’s Fund to assist student groups and associations that proudly represent the College in pre-professional activities, conferences, and design competitions across Canada and beyond. Strong support to the Dean’s Fund has allowed the College to increase the financial assistance from the previous amount of $12,500 to $20,000 per year.

Whatever area you might choose to direct your donation, the College of Engineering welcomes your support. For further information or discussion, please contact or (306) 966-5273.
