“We build the bridge between student and professional life”

About us

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a not-for-profit professional organization that 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.

Current research activities are in the areas of controls and robotics, energy, power generation, fluid mechanics, MEMS, nanotechnology, and biomechanics. Design is the discipline that shapes human experiences in specific situations to improve quality. It includes the design, development, and manufacture of machinery and devices. Mechanical contractors oversee the mechanical projects for organizations. They are responsible for the heating or cooling systems, refrigeration, piping, and plumbing.

Who We Are:

The ASME chapter at Fairleigh Dickinson University is part of the vibrant global ASME community and aims to provide students with real-world engineering experiences.  As part of this commitment, ASME hosts a monthly seminar series, where professional engineers come and speak about their career path and experiences in the industry.
