Official page for American Society of Mechanical Engineers at Santa Clara University

ASME, the national organization, sets engineering industry standards across the board both nationally and internationally.

ASME has a multitude of districts in the US. SCU ASME is part of District D, which constitutes the west coast. Our local professional chapter is the Santa Clara Valley Section (SCVS), which you will mostly likely hear about over the course of the year.

Here's the lineup for our student chapter:

Paul Novisoff (2014) - Chair
Basi Ugarte (2014) - Vice Chair
Andrew Torrellas (2014) - Treasurer
Maza Brady (2014) - Secretary
Claire Kunkle (2014) - Public Relations/Outreach
Megan Peekema (2015) - Event Coordinator
Professor Terry Shoup - Club Advisor

Note: Prof. Shoup was once the President of ASME as a whole... So he's kind of a big deal...

And a more formal definition of ASME...

Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that promotes the art, science and practice of mechanical and multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences throughout the world. The core values of ASME are rooted in its mission to better enable mechanical engineering practitioners to contribute to the well-being of humankind.

ASME is an organization representing, promoting, and expanding mechanical engineering. It is an international association, and in order to simplify geographical barriers the society is split up into districts. The district containing: British Columbia - Northwest Territory - Yukon Territory - Alaska - California - Hawaii - Idaho - Montana - Nevada - Oregon - Washington is known as District D.
