Ingenieurwesen

Holy crap! There is a secret society of engineers in Canada. They wear Iron Rings which legend has it were originally hammered manually from the steel of a beam from the Quebec Bridge, which collapsed during construction in 1907, killing 75 construction workers due to poor engineering. Although that bit isn't true the collapse of the bridge did inspire the creation of the organization.

They even have an initiation ritual written by Rudyard Kipling, The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer. It is good stuff too. It has Morse Code and reading from Apocryphal books of the Bible (2nd Esdras).
