The NEW and IMPROVED ASME Mentoring Program
Have you ever wondered how successful engineers are made? Chances are they had a great mentor. Someone who unleashed their passion, channeled their energy, guided their growth and encouraged their success. Do you feel you could be such an inspiring mentor? Or wish you had such a great coach and role model? ASME is here to help! Introducing its new and improved ASME Mentoring Program now with many new tools and features. So what's new?
ASME member Dylon Rockwell is an airframe design and integration engineer at the Boeing Company in Ridley, Pa., where he serves as a principal investigator for manufacturing technologies. After joining Boeing in 2011, Dylon was assigned to the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft program. The V-22 combines the vertical performance of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft, is used primarily in cargo and crew delivery. After receiving training in variation analysis software, Dylon went on to perform analysis for Boeing’s Crew Space Transportation (CST-100) Starliner, Space Launch System and Sikorsky Boeing SB>1 Defiant programs to quantify and mitigate assembly risk. A member of ASME since 2013, Dylon is a new member of the Society’s Y14.46 Committee Support Group. He received a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics and astronautics engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011, and a master’s degree in systems engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2015.

As a teenager, Ashish Sinha read about ‘heat’ in his physics textbook. Looking for a chapter on ‘cold,’ he couldn’t find one. Eventually, “I figured out that ‘cold’ was the absence of ‘heat,’” he recalls. That was his first encounter with thermal sciences. His professional goal emerged at the Indian institute of Technology: he wrote his thesis on boiling heat transfer, while earning a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Ashish realized he’d like to keep studying heat transfer and thermal sciences, in a doctoral program. At Georgia Tech, he specialized in thermal management of electronics, which deals with the art of cooling electronic components. “I knew society would always need a person with this skill. Something is always getting hot and needs to be cooled,” he observes.
Thermal management, a fast-growing area, brings constant challenges. “The problem is much more pronounced in electronic cooling. People do more and more on handheld devices, which don’t have enough space for cooling technology,” Ashish explains. “Everything’s getting smaller. Chips are more powerful. That leaves fewer ways to drive the heat out.”
