Setting the Global Standards

ASME was founded in 1880 as a professional community where mechanical engineers could exchange ideas and share information. Today, ASME sets the global codes and standards across mechanical engineering and related disciplines with an unwavering commitment to public safety and engineering excellence.

Advancing Engineering

ASME plays another equally vital and powerful role: it is the central information and learning hub for engineers worldwide. ASME’s programs, forums, research, and rich digital ecosystem accelerate engineering innovation for the greater good.
