E4C Fellows receive support to better understand the issues and market conditions encountered by engineers who are addressing critical quality-of-life challenges. Fellows expand the knowledge base through technology reports, market models, and user experience analyses, among other projects. All E4C Research Fellows’ work product is shared on ASME’s public digital global development platforms, amplifying its use and impact.
ASME currently offers three fellowship programs to engineers seeking to advance ASME’s mission through involvement in global development, education, and government.
