ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a nonprofit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education, and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world. From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders, ASME’s members are as diverse as the engineering community itself.
ASME Engineering Education (EE) is among the leading advocates, nationally and internationally, for quality and innovation in mechanical engineering education at all levels; the premier resource for the support, development and recognition of excellence among engineering students, faculty, department heads, and other “stakeholders” in the mechanical engineering education community worldwide; and the primary forum for communication on matters related to mechanical engineering education among the academic, government, and industrial communities.
We are seeking an intern to assist across the three engineering education focus areas, including: K-12, scholarships, and faculty/workforce development. The intern would apply research methods from education, learning sciences, and social-behavioral sciences to address a variety of issues pertaining to: teaching and learning; college access and persistence; workforce development; and other issues critical to the success of the field of mechanical engineering.
