American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

ASME is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and was founded in 1880 in order to promote Mechanical Engineering. The society strives to create a community of mechanical engineers looking to improve and promote the industry. The not-for-profit professional organization enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.

The Santa Clara University student chapter possesses the same vision focusing on the engineering students at the university. The chapter provides opportunities to develop relationships with other student engineers, create connections with professional engineers from industry, and give back to the local community through funded programs. The chapter also provides a discounted student membership to the national organization.
