Greetings from the Metropolitan Section Chair
The Metropolitan Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in New York City is a long time community that has devoted its efforts to provide the best services to our members via technical presentations and the social and professional development of our members.
With a focus on members, the Metropolitan Section for over 100 years has provided services to its members through successful joint technical meetings with other Societies such as MESC, NYSSPE, and AIChE. More importantly, the Metropolitan Section also provides financial assistance to the Student Sections for their activities within the principle of cost sharing for the specific activity.
Additionally, the Metropolitan Section established communication with almost all of the Student Sections within our Section through a multischool meeting in October where students and faculty advisors from New York Colleges affiliated with the Met Section gathered to discuss joint activities and ways in which the Met Section can provide support for the Student Sections. Additionally, the Met Section continued to provide technical information through technical presentations on subjects that are of interest to the membership and maintained a permanent service to our members via networking with other professional Societies, and announcing job opportunities.
Additionally, the Metropolitan Section has established a Scholarship exclusively for the Met Section Students interested in pursuing a higher Degree in Mechanical Engineering to the level of Master or Doctorate.
The website or newsletter is your point of contact with the Metropolitan Section. Here you can find the list of the members of the Executive Committee in charge of planning and coordinating activities, and any member is welcome to participate in the activities of the Executive Committee in any activity that is of your interest. Ideas for servicing the community are always welcome.
To get more information related to your Met Section, please browse this website or newsletter and become active in your Metropolitan Section.
Please accept this invitation to be a more active ASME member and a colleague. Your Met Section is waiting for you.
