The USCGA Student Chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) consists of cadets enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering Major.
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
The USCGA student chapter of ASME helps introduce cadets to mechanical engineering in the real world by attendance at chapter meetings and lectures, tours to work sites, and during lunch meetings held on campus.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Mission:
To serve our diverse global communities by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge for improving the quality of life; and communicating the excitement of engineering.
