“I have learned a lot on so many levels and I am so thankful to the Committee for having granted me a scholarship for this event. The forum has given me great insights on what working in industry could represent and thanks to that I am now considering new stimulating options for my future career. ”— Comment from an Outreach attendee.
The Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering Division (OOAE) of ASME is hosting a specialty forum at the 2017 International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE) in Trondheim, Norway. The specialty forum is designed for students and early professionals who may not be familiar with the industry as well as those who have already specialized in this area.
This is the eleventh year of the Outreach for Engineers Forum. Highlights of the Forum will include presentations of the various technologies required (e.g. from ocean and/or offshore engineering, civil engineering, petroleum engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical/structural engineering and project management), types of job opportunities, possible career paths and a team building activity. As each year is different a site tour or job fair may be included.
In addition, Outreach for Engineers Specialty Forum delegates will be provided with the opportunity to participate at the 36th International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering as full conference delegates.
