The castle is taken from the insignia of the
Corps of Engineers. The torch represents the
organization's function as a center of enlightenment
in the field of engineering. Scarlet and white
are colors used for the Corps of Engineers.
The school, located at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri,
was previously situated at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
It can be traced back to the founding of the
United States Military Academy at West Point,
which for many years was the nation's only
engineering school. In 1866, the Essayons Club,
devoted to the development and application of
engineering principles, was established at
Willets Point, New York. It evolved into the
Engineer School.

The motto of the school is "Essayons."
