American Society of Mechanical Engineers
University of Michigan - Flint | Student Chapter
ASME is an international, non-profit, professional engineering organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. As a Chapter, we represent the organization at the University of Michigan-Flint. We are a student-run organization that meets weekly throughout the academic year, in the UM-Flint Engineering Annex, housed in the Harrison Street parking ramp.
In the past two years, we worked through the engineering processed to create and design our own 3D printing machine and a hovercraft – this year we’ve completed a drone! We follow the ASME IAM3D competition and participate each year. This takes place at ASME’s E-Fest. This year’s event is at Michigan State University, from April 3rd-5th.
As a chapter with a shorter length of establishment with the University, the funding we receive does not always cover the needed purchases equipment and merchandise. This prevents our team from reaching its fullest potential. That’s why we are reaching out to you!
