Professional Societies & Organizations, Mechanical Engineering
Participation in our professional organizations provides students an opportunity to interact with practicing engineers in the professional community, as well as an opportunity to learn about current events in the field through speakers, site visits, or demonstrations. These events provide an important complement to the curriculum and also allow the students to get away from campus and meet new people while learning more about mechanical engineering and making important connections with local professionals.
American Society of Mechanical Engineers
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is the flagship professional society for our field. Engineers from all disciplines, such as biomechanics, automotive engineering, and aerospace engineering are part of this society. Philadelphia’s ASME chapter provides programming for student societies, such as design competitions, as well as seminars and professional meetings.
American Helicopter Society
Given the prominent role of the helicopter industry in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, the American Helicopter Society is a very active society, allowing students to interact with many engineers in this field at local events.
Tau Beta Pi and other Honor Societies
Tau Beta Pi and other honor societies help our students boost their resumes; not only do they reflect academic achievement, but they also aid in building leadership and character. These honor societies provide scholarships, grants, networking, and career opportunities to our students.
