American Society of Mechanical Engineers
The student section of the A.S.M.E. at the University of Texas at Arlington is dedicated to the purpose of introducing A.S.M.E. International to the student body of UT Arlington. In addition, this student organization strives to support and strengthen the intellectual and social ties that bind our members. Guests and Visitors are always welcome.
ASME is a great place to meet new people, socialize, and receive help. In room 201 Woolf Hall, we have a friendly environment where members or non-members can relax in.
- Comfy couches
- A study area with numerous tables and chairs
- Computers for doing schoolwork
- Abundant homework help
Aside from having a nice office, we participate in competitions and conferences throughout the school year. It is a great way to meet students from other schools, and you get to visit new places. In addition to conferences and competitions, we also put together a special event each year, the ASME Networking Banquet. This event was designed to aid students in finding a job in the engineering industry, and helps companies find those students. This is a great opportunity for students that are graduating, or have already graduated, and students seeking internships.
