Who are we?
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at San Jose State University is group of mechanical engineering students who design projects together and develop career and technical skills. ASME strives to carry on the goals and objectives of the global American Society of Mechanical Engineering community. Our mission as a student chapter is to reinforce knowledge and hard skills by application, strengthen interclub relations through collaboration, and promote the importance of soft skills through teamwork. We also provide information to our students on the academic opportunities available on and outside of campus and promote interaction between students and reps from industry in order to further their professional development within the field.
Why are we raising the money?
We compete annually in the Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) while also having our students compete in Autodesk challenges. We cover all three fields of engineering under the Mechanical Engineering Department with Thermal Systems, Mechatronics, and Design. We placed as high as 1st in our first Autodesk Challenge this summer with over 50% of our projects winning prizes. In the HPVC competition we’ve placed as high as 2nd and are looking to get first this year. We are raising money for the very high materials cost from manufacturing the HPVC and hosting the competition itself which we are confirmed to host in this spring on campus at SJSU..
