The Student Advisory Committee (SAC) is a group of students who work to foster student engagement in the IGTI community and improve the Turbo Expo conference every year. Towards this goal, the SAC organizes various sessions and events during the conference, provides opportunities for students to work behind the scenes with leaders in their technical area, and awards travel funds to eligible degree seeking individuals.
SAC Committee Members: Chair: Jacob Snyder, Penn State University Vice Chair: Zhiping Mao, Duke University Secretary: Michelle Wood, University of Houston Past-Chair: Kathryn Kirsch, Penn State University

Student Poster Session
One major event organized by the SAC is the Student Poster Competition. Presenting a poster is an excellent opportunity to display research outside of a paper while still contributing to the continuing advancements in the turbomachinery community. To be eligible to present a poster, the presenting author must have completed the research presented on the poster while seeking a degree at a university at an undergraduate (Bachelor's) or graduate level (Master's or PhD). Submit your research and contribute to the continuing conversation on advancements in gas and wind turbine technology. Abstracts are due December 31, 2016 to the webtool located on the TE 2017 website.

SAC Sessions at Turbo Expo
The sessions organized by the SAC during the technical conference are focused on professional development and are open to all conference attendees. In previous years, the SAC has curated panel sessions led by community leaders on Turbomachinery Careers and Networking, as well as tutorial sessions titled "Effective Technical Presentations", and "The Art of the Peer Review Process." Details on SAC sponsored sessions for TE 2017 will be available in the advance program published online prior to the conference. Suggestions for Tutorial or Panel Session topics can be emailed to the SAC.
The SAC is also involved in the planning of student-specific events during the conference, such as the Student and Early Career Engineer Mixer. This popular event allows students and make new friends and build their professional network in a casual evening atmosphere.
FutureME Mini-Talks at Power Energy/Turbo Expo
Join the ASME ECE Programming Committee for this social experience! You will have the opportunity to hear four short, relevant, and inspirational Mini-Talks given in an informal setting by experienced engineers sharing their perspective on career development.
In addition to the Mini-Talks, you can meet up with other mechanical engineers who have similar interests to network professionally, and make new connections with ASME leadership and/or renew past friendships. Bring plenty of business cards for networking!
Get Involved in the following ways:
The nomination deadline is March 1, 2017
Old Guard Early Award Deadline: February 1, 2017
The Call for the Old Guard Early Career Award nominations are underway.
Eligible nominees must be a current ASME member and have earned a baccalaureate degree in Mechanical Engineering between years February 1, 2009 - February 1, 2013.
A $5000 honorarium will be awarded to the grand prize recipient including ASME Membership dues paid for life (valued at $3000). In addition, a $2000 honorarium will be awarded to the two (2) runner-up recipients along with a paid ASME membership dues for life. All recipients will receive a plaque.

Revised Program to support program development for local activities and events
The recently revamped ASME FutureME Program Grant (formerly known as the Early Career Forums Grant) is providing early career engineers and recent graduates with a whole new spectrum of career development possibilities and opportunities through innovative and leading edge activities and events.
For years the ASME Early Career Forums offered a venue for early career engineers to network, learn and share experiences and knowledge, and ultimately it served as a source of inspiration for the ECE Programming Committee to explore new concepts and ideas to take this experience to a whole new level, and that’s what led us to develop the ASME FutureME Program Grant. It’s meant to challenge event participants and organizers to explore and propose new models and strategies that aim to advance the state of the art of career development techniques.
This program is the result of a joint effort between the ECE Programming Committee and the ASME Old Guard Committee. Thanks to this partnership ASME has been able to offer throughout the years a solid and effective platform that provides the planning expertise and guidance, and the financial support necessary to ASME units for the development and organization of activities and programs dedicated to aid the transition from university to professional life.
One of the main goals of the ECE Programming Committee is to pursue the new ASME FutureME Program Grant model to re-innovate and expand its outreach, by offering a more diversified palette of products and opportunities for a larger audience with different interests and styles but with career goals and needs in common. The ASME FutureME Program Grant marks the evolution from a conference like only model to one that allows the activity organizers to work together with the FutureME Program Grant team and propose and develop the programs that best suit the needs and interests of its customer, the possibilities are vast.
The organizers of an Early Career event held in Venezuela (the first to be hosted outside the US) said, “this event opened our eyes and helped us and the participants gain a new perspective about the real engineering world, something that we don’t get to experience very often as in the early stages of our careers, events like these are necessary to create awareness about career development resources and hints for success”.
Alberto Mazzoleni, organizer of the first European Early Career Forum in Brescia, Italy expressed, “The ECF preparation was first of all a big challenge for the organizing committee members, getting in contact with the different experts and professionals from different domains that we invited as speakers, and get their support and ideas for the event, was something we had never done before. The event was then a great networking moment for all the participants. At that time different visions are put face to face. Young people had the opportunity to taste what it’s like to be a professional engineer and experienced people from industry and academia could better understand the needs and fears of young engineers.”
How to Apply
ASME Units interested in applying to the ASME FutureME Program Grant can submit their event proposals year round through the ASME GPS Requisition Tool. The Grant provides up to USD $1,500 for each approved event or activity with the opportunity to get an additional $500 if video or written content of the approved FutureME Program is provided.
