Through over 100 endowed honors and awards, ASME annually recognizes the work of the great engineering minds and the rising leaders on the cusp of major breakthroughs. Many of these distinctions are awarded for exemplary technical work, while others honor recipients’ commitment to developing and supporting the next generation of engineers.
Work for which an individual can be honored runs the gamut of engineering topics, from broad areas like product safety design to more specific ones, like innovations in robotics and bioengineering.
Gwynne Shotwell, president and chief operating officer of SpaceX, was the 2018 recipient of the Ralph Coats Roe Medal recognizing outstanding contributions toward a better public understanding and appreciation of the engineer’s worth to contemporary society.
Your support of the ASME Foundation helps build a better future for all of us. Heartfelt thanks to all who contribute their time, financial resources, and in-kind support. Together, we are empowering the innovative problem-solvers of tomorrow.
