ASME Student Sections
There are currently over 575 ASME student sections. ASME Student Sections are chartered at
mechanical engineering colleges and universities around the world with the following purposes:
- to promote the goals of the Society;
- to complement the curriculum of the educational institution,
- to offer mutual support in study, learning, and professionalism;
- to provide personal connections and communications within the Society and the profession, and
- to provide outreach and service to society in general.
Student Sections are encouraged to organize and provide a variety of activities of technical content and
professional and personal value such as:
- technical presentations;
- personal-skill development activities;
- professional introductions and relationships;
- joint activities with other ASME units of all types and with similar units at the parent Institution;
- engineering and technical Competitions,
- local and global Awards and recognitions;
- engineering-related volunteer and community services;
- outreach to potential engineering students; and
- encouragement of continued membership in ASME and in peer engineering and professional societies.

ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 120,000 members in over 150 countries worldwide.
From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders, ASME's members are as diverse as the engineering community itself. ASME serves this wide-ranging technical community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach.
The ASME was founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
