ASME Steak Roast 2013

1st Program for the 2013-14 Program Year

Please join us for the ASME steak roast on Tuesday October 1 at 6:00 PM.  This year’s program will be a timely technical event related to global warming, provided by Bill Bishop, PE.  For our PE member, this program will offer 1 PDH.  

The Program: Climate Change Basics for Engineers

Is global warming manmade?  This presentation will be a summary of technical aspects of climate change science, including; global impacts, regional impacts, mitigation and potential solutions.  It is intended to provide engineers with sufficient background information on climate change to inform their engineering decisions and business practices and to enable them to educate and engage the public.          

Please join us.  This is an opportunity to have a pleasant meal, see old friends and network with other mechanical engineers in the Rochester area.  The program will engage and challenge your understanding of global warming.
