Student and Early Career Engineer Opportunities

ASME's IGTI Division, in conjunction with the Student Advisory Committee (SAC), offers many opportunities for students, as well as early career engineers. These include networking events, experience reviewing papers, and even Turbo Expo travel awards. Read more on these and other benefits of getting involved below.

The Student Advisory Committee Travel Awards (SACTA) consists of reimbursement of up to $2,000 USD for approved expenses to attend and participate in ASME Turbo Expo.

For more information, visit the Student Advisory Committee Travel Awards page.

The ASME IGTI Student Advisory Committee (SAC) is looking for student liaisons to interact directly with the ASME IGTI technical committees. The SAC liaison will be expected to serve as a link between the SAC and their respective technical committee chair. This role will give the student a chance to collaborate in future tutorial sessions at Turbo Expo, communicate ideas and updates between the SAC and the technical committee, and opportunities for professional development.

More information forthcoming.

The SAC Student Paper Review Initiative aims to pair a student with a senior member of the community to complete a paper review. We are looking for students who are interested in reviewing a paper for Turbo Expo 2024 and the Journal of Turbomachinery. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how the review process works, and to work with a leader in the student's preferred field.

For more information, please visit the Student Paper Review Initiative page.

The Student Poster Competition is a major event organized by the SAC at Turbo Expo. Presenting a poster is an excellent opportunity to display research outside of a paper while still contributing to the continuing advancements in the turbomachinery community. To be eligible to present a poster, the presenting author must have completed the research presented on the poster while seeking a degree at a university at an undergraduate (Bachelor's) or graduate level (Master's or PhD). Submit your research and contribute to the continuing conversation on advancements in turbine technology.

Information regarding the 2024 competition coming soon.

The Student Advisory Committee Travel Awards (SACTA) have been made available for students in 2023, with priority given to students who both participate in the conference and actively contribute to the growth of the SAC. The award will consist of reimbursement of approved expenses to attend and participate in ASME Turbo Expo up to $2,000 USD. Applicants for these awards must be seeking a degree. Preference will be given to students who have previously worked and/or have applied to work as a student liaison for Turbo-Expo. The applicant must agree to participate in the SAC Annual Meeting and be willing to help the SAC leadership team review student posters. Communication with the SAC leadership team may be requested prior to, during, and following Turbo Expo.
