American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

Academic - Engineering


Since its founding in 1880 the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) strives to be the premier worldwide organization for promoting the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. Today ASME is comprised of over 125,000 members from around the globe, making up over 400 sections and student sections including Iowa State University’s. The society serves engineering professionals, students, and educators alike. The Iowa State University section of ASME is completely student run. It provides student members with the opportunities to grow beyond the classroom. The section has many activities throughout the academic year that are geared towards extended learning. These include industry sponsored meetings, professional discussions, and design competitions. Company representatives frequently participate in our regularly scheduled events to meet ASME members, and learn more about member’s participation in design competitions, student professional development conferences and community outreach.
