It is our main goal to increase membership and get students from all levels of education involved in our activities. There are events geared towards each level of student development every month. General Interest Meetings are the ASME's first attempt at contacting the student community at the start of each semester. Executive Committee Meetings are held each month and consist of the ASME officers, faculty advisors, and any students wishing to take part in planning ASME events. Tours and Lectures are planned throughout the school year as well as design competitions and machine shop training. The dates and times for these meetings are posted and updated regularly.

Human Powered Vehicle Competition
Human-powered transport is often the only type available in underdeveloped or inaccessible parts of the world, and if well designed, can be an increasingly viable form of sustainable transportation.
ASME's international Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate engineering students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives. In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use - from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.
Currently the ASME is working on designs for the Human Powered Vehicle Competition with plans to compete in the Spring 2011 competition. For more information including rules and regulations please visit the following link:
