The lingering buzz from last week’s ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition in Vancouver continues, and now that everyone is back in the office, so does the work of the Society.
At last count, this year’s Congress had about 3,000 registrants. There were more than 500 technical sessions, plus an insightful energy focused keynote event featuring a moderated discussion among four leading experts; an Honors Assembly that celebrated the accomplishments of individuals who have advanced technology; three special sessions on the Energy Grand Challenge; and numerous other special events, book signings, receptions, and networking opportunities.
The buzz continues… in the coming weeks and months ASME will unveil its Engineering For Change initiative, and a new, content rich, ASME.ORG. Moreover, the Society will continue to pursue its three strategic areas: energy, engineering workforce development, global impact and outreach–aimed at ensuring that the voice of engineers is heard in these three important areas. And beginning next month, Mechanical Engineering magazine will begin a year-long initiative called PROJECT CROWDSOURCING. Details of Project Crowdsourcing will be in the December issue of the magazine and also on this blog and on Facebook at on.fb.me/MEMAGAZINE.
