The Professional Technology Ring


 The technology ring is a symbol of professionalism. It is worn exclusively by certified applied science/ engineering technologists and technicians across the country. The ring is characterized by a repeating pattern of five gears bracketed by a maple leaf on each side. The gears represent the five members of the engineering team – trades person, technician, technologist, engineer and scientist. While it may be worn according to the member’s preference, professional rings are traditionally worn on the last finger of the working hand.
