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.
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.
The ASME Foundation
With its multidisciplinary focus and engagement with academia, industry, and government, the ASME Foundation is uniquely positioned to nurture diverse next generation engineers and the life-changing breakthroughs they will create.
