The primary goal of the Georgia Tech ASME chapter is to act as intermediaries between companies and students by coordinating events, networking opportunities, and on-campus programs to promote the professional, educational, and social goals of students. ASME facilitates student interest in Mechanical Engineering by organizing and hosting weekly company presentations, plant tours, professional speakers, and career fairs that place students in direct contact with practicing professionals. The chapter is entirely student-run by the members of the executive board and volunteer board.
Every week of the semester, our organization brings in a company to speak to our students about job opportunities, company innovation, and career paths for Georgia Tech students. These meetings are held every Thursday and draw around 60-80 Mechanical Engineering undergraduate and graduate students who are looking for internships, co-ops, or full-time positions at your company. Students will have the chance to ask any questions they may have and companies may meet future employees who will make significant contributions to the company.
Join us every Thursday at 10:55 AM in MRDC 2404. Check out the weekly meetings page for a list of upcoming companies and more information about the meetings. Don’t forget the free pizza!
With over 500 attendees each year, our ME Career Fair provides students the opportunity to meet with world-renowned engineering companies. Being a major specific event, the smaller career fair allows for companies to have more time to talk to strictly Mechanical Engineering students at Georgia Tech. The primary focus of our career fair this fall is to provide opportunities for students to gain industry experience and for companies to acquire young talent. Visit the career fair page for more information about our next career fair.
The Spring Picnic is a networking picnic for our members and a great opportunity for companies to meet students in a casual setting. While there are around 50 companies in attendance at our career fairs, there are only a handful of companies at our spring picnic, providing a more personal interaction between companies and students. The picnic is a much more relaxed way to make personal connections with companies or students while enjoying a free, catered meal and nice weather.
ASMentors is a program that is designed for students third year and above to mentor their fellow peers in all aspects of Mechanical Engineering and Georgia Tech. This program is a great opportunity for upperclassman students to gain leadership experience and underclassman to receive answers to questions outside of the classroom environment. Third year and above students are able to apply as mentors. First and Second year students are able to apply as mentees.
Students and Faculty Luncheon
The Students and Faculty Luncheon is a networking event for our members and faculty within the Mechanical Engineering department. This is a great opportunity for students to meet and get to know faculty in a casual setting. Students and faculty will have a chance to talk outside of the classroom about present and future careers, personal interests, and anything else that students and faculty would not normally have the chance to talk about. What better way for students to meet their professors and advisors than over a free lunch?
We work with companies to coordinate plant tours for small groups of students to expose them to the Mechanical Engineering industry. We are targeting plants within a two-hour drive of Atlanta to reduce travel costs for students and will work with you to determine the best times and dates for the tours. Historically, Thursdays through Sundays have been the most successful days of the week.
