Our engineering clubs and organizations give you the chance to connect with people who have common interests and goals. The friendships you develop now could help determine your career path. 

American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Mason Chapter

All students are welcome to participate in Mason's chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
All students are welcome to participate in Mason's chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Members can participate in an ASME-sponsored engineering festival (E-Fest), which offers a series of competitions designed to expand knowledge, stimulate innovation, and build résumés. Competitions include the human-powered vehicle challenge, student design competition, innovative additive manufacturing 3D challenge, and oral and technical poster competition.

Some members of Mason’s chapter of ASME visit local high school to talk with students about the mechanical engineering degree at Mason and mentor prospective engineers. Follow Mason’s chapter of ASME activities on Twitter and Facebook.
