What is ASME?
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is an engineering society that focuses on mechanical engineering. ASME was founded in 1880 by Henry Rossiter Worthington, Matthias N. Forney, John Edison Sweet, and Alexander Lyman Holley. It was primarily established to take on the numerous malfunctions of steam boiler pressure vessels.
ASME is famous for setting codes and standards in mechanical engineering. In fact, the organization is responsible for one of largest technical publishing newspapers – the ASME Press. ASME caters to the science community through its various technical conferences and professional development courses. In addition, the organization supports many educational programs each year.

First Hand's-on Design Project
12/06/17 - 7 PM Bainer 1070
On December 6th at 7pm, ASME at UC Davis will host it's first design class of the year. The project will be to build a solar powered LED bike light with an alarm theft deterrent. Students will be provided with circuitry drawings and equipment for the project. Upon completion of the project, students will gain a basic understanding of circuitry and practice/learn soldering skills. The supplies and equipment will be supplied by ASME at UC Davis at no charge and students will be able to keep their finished bike lights. Pizza will be provided. THE FIRST 20 students to register will be guaranteed a spot and will be notified a week in advance of their enrollment. All years and majors are encouraged to participate. The project will take 1-1.5 hours to complete. Sign up HERE
