Membership

Today’s busy lifestyles, increasing work and family obligations leave little time for clubs, professional societies and the like. Before committing more time to a new endeavor you must ask “What’s in it for me?”
At ASME, we practice the mechanics of listening to you! ASME has done extensive membership surveys to find out what our members want.
As a mechanical engineering professional, ASME  is your society. It is through the strength of the member committees that run all of its activities that ASME has flourished since 1880. As a mechanical engineer in the petroleum industry, ASME is here to provide you with services specific to your needs.
Mechanical engineering in the petroleum industry offers you diversity and skills that will allow you to have a long and fulfilling career.  The industry is expanding to embrace new technologies. Cutting edge experience earned in the industry is valued throughout.
Mechanical engineering in the petroleum industry has evolved along with the industry itself.
The early pioneers of Spindletop would hardly recognize today’s skyscrapers looming above deep water in search of oil and gas. Emerging technologies such as solar energy, wind power, and fuel cells are the province of the petroleum industry.

Meetings and Events
The events produced or sponsored by ASME-PD seek to be visionary, cutting-edge, industry specific. We paint with a broad brush – from technological conferences to special events – we draw from the many diverse and global perspectives that make up this unique organization to create a palette of rich experiences for our members.
We seek and encourage feedback on our events and hope to educate all members to the powerful advantages offered through the technical paper publication process available through many of our conferences.
Throughout the world, the events offered by ASME-PD create invaluable networking opportunities for our members. As the pace of science quickens and our connections to projects, teams and companies through the Internet continues its unfathomable race, the ASME-PD is poised to link its members on many levels to the changing world of mechanical engineering.
There are many benefits to membership in ASME-PD. In addition to the numerous meetings and events for members, the institute sponsors high school, college and graduate school scholarships, offers a discount on the Journal of Energy Resources Technology (JERT) and distributes a myriad of professional awards.
The public often associates the petroleum sector of mechanical engineering with the problems rather than the miracles of our ongoing industrial revolution.  The reality of the 21st century energy industry is quite the opposite. The “Help Wanted” sign is out for those who can engineer increased energy efficiency, alternative and renewable energy utilization, and environmentally friendly technologies. The interests of the industry and society point in the same direction. The greatest challenge confronting any campaign to attract young talent to mechanical engineering is to return attention to the miracle. Oil and gas is embracing some of the most cutting edge technology of any industry in the world.
Awards
One of the main tenants of ASME-PD is to support the art and science of mechanical engineering. Recognition through awards achieves this end in that it encourages innovation and greater levels of professional excellence.
Additionally, awards help to further the careers of practicing engineers. Bestowing awards is one of the greatest pleasures of our organization, because it allows a unique opportunity for the industry as a whole to look inside itself and discover its own greatness.

Education
PD, in conjunction with ASME, is proud to sponsor an array of exciting educational programs – everything from innovative high school competitions to scholarships and continuing education programs for mechanical engineers who are already pursuing careers. ASME-PD is dedicated to the belief that outstanding engineering begins with a solid foundation of education. To that end, they have developed, and will continue to create, programs that support life-long learning
