ASME is dedicated to the ASME Next Generation and the value that engineering students have to strengthening the industry. Here are some student focused events that will take place at IMECE. Check back often as we continue to add more student programming throughout the year.
Old Guard Presentation Competition Finals
All are invited to attend the finals of the Oral Presentation Competition sponsored by the Old Guard Committee. The students competing have varied engineering backgrounds, possess in depth knowledge of their subject matter and a talent for presenting. An engineer, like all professionals, must possess a well-developed ability to communicate, both orally and in writing. The Old Guard Presentation Competition is designed to emphasize the value of an ability to deliver oral presentations.
Students and graduates are invited to present and/or compete with their posters based on work from NSF-funded research. This forum provides the students an opportunity to disseminate their research to their junior, peer, senior, and experts-in-the-field colleagues. IMECE provides the unique environment for students to interact with fellow researchers from single-focus, multidisciplinary, and/or international backgrounds.
Undergraduate Research and Design Expo Student Poster Competition
The IMECE Undergraduate Research and Design Exposition is a poster forum that provides undergraduate mechanical engineering students with a professional and technical forum for presenting their research, design project, and other engineering solutions and endeavors. IMECE provides the unique environment for students to interact with fellow researchers from single-focus, multidisciplinary, and/or international backgrounds. Interested students should submit an abstract by TBD. The students will then submit their poster and a 1-minute video by TBD. Posters will be judged based on the submitted poster and video. ASME is sponsoring monetary awards for first, second and third place.
Abstract Requirements: Abstracts should be submitted using the IMECE webtool. Login as an "Author/Organizer" and then click the button to submit an abstract. You must submit your abstract to the "Undergraduate Research and Design Expo Student Poster Competition" track. The abstract should be 400-600 words long and should include the following elements: An introduction that provides the motivation and purpose of the research. The contribution of the work toward advancing science and/or engineering. The methodology used (e.g., experimental techniques, analytical, computational, etc.). Preliminary results and conclusions. A minimum of one student author per poster must register after the abstract is accepted. The student registrant will be provided access to the conference. Please note that this is a POSTER PRESENTATION competition, only. A paper is not required nor will it be accepted or will it be an option.
