American Society of Mechanical Engineers
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.
ASME’s conferences and publications are primary vehicles for disseminating technical information to the engineering community. The Society’s preeminent technical conference is the annual International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition, which brings together many of the Society’s technical divisions and volunteer leaders to discuss the state of the art in engineering and technology.
The Society sponsors many other technical conferences throughout the year including Turbo Expo, the International Conference on Nuclear Engineering, International Heat Transfer Conference, and Frontiers in Biomedical Devices Conference. Conference proceedings comprise one arm of the Society’s extensive and internationally recognized publishing operation that also encompasses codes and standards, engineering
manuals and academic texts under the ASME Press imprint, and technical journals in a variety of disciplines. Popular journals of the Society include Journal of Heat Transfer, Journal of Engineering for Gas Turbines and Power, Journal of Computing and Information Science in Engineering, Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering, and Journal of Fuel Cell Science and Technology. ASME’s technical publications are available in print or electronically
via the ASME Digital Library, a powerful online tool that allows cross-journal searching, extensive links to primary publishers and databases, and a complete suite of personalization tools.
ASME also publishes Mechanical Engineering magazine, Mechanical Advantage, ME Today, and ASME News, the Society’s online newspaper.
