A student branch of ASME has been established on the Rose-Hulman campus. All students who are enrolled full time at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology are eligible for membership and, after entering, will receive a subscription to "Mechanical Engineering," ASME's monthly publication. Upon graduation, the student member becomes eligible for regular membership in this professional society.
The purpose of the student chapter of ASME is to give students an opportunity to exchange ideas and be exposed to professional mechanical engineering. Activities include regular meetings, community service events, and the annual spring regional student conference. Student members are also eligible to receive scholarships and financial aid sponsored by ASME, access to the ASME job board, and discounted fees for professional development seminars hosted by ASME.
