Frequently asked questions

Here are the most asked questions and answers.  However, if you do not see your questions here, please contact Engineering Alumni Affairs.

How do I order my replacement Iron Ring?

How do I obtain an Iron Ring if I did not receive my BASc from the University of Waterloo or any other accredited Canadian post-secondary institution?

The Iron Ring may only be obtained by attending an official ceremony known as The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer. The Ceremony is restricted to certain engineering degrees from an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution. The Wardens have exclusive authority to determine your eligibility.

Contact the Wardens of Camp 15 Waterloo to determine if you are eligible to obtain the Iron Ring or if you have additional questions.

How do I find my classmate(s)?

UWaterloo Alumni e-Community
To find your classmate(s), please sign up for the free uWaterloo Alumni E-community where you will have access to an on-line alumni directory as well as other services. We can no longer give out class lists due to privacy laws in Canada.

​Finding classmates on LinkedIn is very convenient and easy. Visit the University of Waterloo LinkedIn profile and conduct a search for classmates there using the Alumni Tool (it will narrow down your search results to only those that attended the University of Waterloo). Learn how to use the Alumni Tool by taking a quick 3-minute video tutorial.

You can also look for engineering classmates by joining the Waterloo Engineering Alumni Group.

Waterloo Engineering Hub
The exclusive and private Waterloo Engineering Hub (on the Ten Thousand Coffees platform) will not only allow you to find Waterloo Engineering classmates, but also to schedule a coffee with them to discuss a topic of your choice.
