Article C2.1.1 of ASME’s Constitution states that “The Purposes of the Society are to ... promote the art, science and practice of mechanical and multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences”; By-law B2.1 says that one of the most important ways ASME does this is to “...publish papers and reports and disseminate knowledge and experience of value to engineers.” In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, ASME Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile talks with Jane Davidson, Chair of ASME’s Pubs Committee and Philip DiVietro, ASME’s Managing Director for Publishing, to discuss some of the challenges they have handled together at the helm of ASME’s publications world.
ASME’s TEC Sector is home to ASME’s 36 technical divisions, each of which is devoted to a distinct discipline or area of mechanical engineering. ASME’s technical divisions are natural hubs for all sorts of activities within those disciplines, including production of ASME’s world-leading technical conferences and the publication of the knowledge and expertise shared at those conferences. In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile speaks with Tim Graves, ASME’s Managing Director of Technical Events & Conferences, about the amazingly broad and important work of ASME’s TEC Sector, about which aspects of the ASME “technology engine” Tim and his team have been focused on recently, and about their plans to keep this vital ASME power source running smoothly and powerfully.
ASME’s volunteers are the lifeblood of this society; their dedication and excellence are the basis of everything ASME does both for engineers and for the wider world. As Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile says: “It’s all about the volunteers.” In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Tom speaks with Pasquale Dell’Aquila, a volunteer leader based at ASME’s Oregon Section, about how he first became involved in volunteering with ASME, about the rewarding work he has done and continues to do, and about his goal to encourage engineers everywhere to share his passion for ASME.
ASME’s Learning & Development efforts are among the most important work this Society does on behalf of engineers and engineering. But in today’s world, engineering education opportunities aren’t needed only at the beginning of one’s path – they are vitally important both all throughout a career and yet also “right now,” in response to professional needs that arise in real time. In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile talks with Arin Ceglia, ASME’s Director of Learning & Development, about what her team is working on to serve the life-long and yet “just-in-time” learning needs of 21st century technical professionals at every stage of their careers, as well as her vision of where ASME “Learning & Development” efforts will be within the near future.
Episode 8 - ASME and Bioengineering
ASME Today & Tomorrow
03/29/19 • 6 min
Bioengineering is one of the five strategic technologies ASME has chosen to focus its efforts in coming years (the others are Advanced Manufacturing, Pressure Technology, Clean Energy and Robotics). In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile talks with Christine Reilley, ASME’s Business Development Director for Healthcare, about ASME’s work in the areas of bioengineering and biomedical engineering, as well as how the Society is responding to the needs of the ME profession and the wider world in an era of undreamt-of possibilities at the intersection of biology and engineering.
While ASME has been dedicated to its work for engineering and the wider world for more than a century, today’s ASME is, as the saying goes, not “your grandfather’s ASME.” In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile talks with ASME’s President-elect Rich Laudenat and Past President Bob Simmons and about how the Society has changed over the years while becoming more effective and focused on advancing its mission than ever.
ASME is involved in a variety of efforts to transform, revitalize and diversify engineering education, with a focus on making headway with the many conflicting demands on what students should learn, how they should learn, and who should be learning. In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, ASME’s Executive Director Tom Costabile and Director of Strategic Communications Michael Cowan chat with Aisha Lawrey, ASME’s Director of Engineering Education, about the Mechanical Engineering Education Leadership Summit coming up in March and other important events this year, and about why she is such a passionate advocate for increasing diversity in engineering.
Inspiring and engaging tomorrow’s engineers is central to ASME’s mission. ASME Engineering FestivalsTM (E-Fests) and the related series of activities known as ASME EFxTM are some of the most exciting ways the Society engages next generation engineers all around the globe. In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Callie Tourigny, ASME’s Senior Vice President for Student & Early Career Development, and Brandy Smith, ASME’s Senior Manager of STEM Programs, join Tom Costabile, ASME’s Executive Director, and Michael Cowan, ASME’s Director of Strategic Communications, for a discussion of how they’re raising the bar on inspiring the next generation of engineers.
There may be no more important factor in ensuring the continued vitality and impact of the engineering profession than attracting and nurturing the next generation of engineers. In this episode of ASME Today & Tomorrow, Brianna Migliaccio, President of the ASME Chapter at New York University and a member of its engineering school’s Class of 2020, joins Executive Director Tom Costabile and Michael Cowan, Director of Strategic Communications, for a discussion about what inspired her to pursue studies in mechanical engineering and why the opportunity to serve as an engineering leader means so much to her.
In this special edition of ASME Today & Tomorrow, ASME Executive Director/CEO Tom Costabile hosts a wide-ranging conversation with Nancy Fitzroy (ASME’s 105th President, who served 1986-87), Sue Skemp (ASME’s 121st President in 2002-03), Vickie Rockwell (ASME’s 130th President in 2011-12), Madiha Kotb (ASME’s 132nd President in 2013-14), and Charla Wise, (ASME’s 136th President in 2017-18) – every one of the distinguished women to have served as top officer of this Society.
