Our ASME and IIE programs at the University of Minnesota
Duluth are growing every year. There are always opportunities
to do new things. For example, we had the first annual Cardboard
Boat Race a couple years ago. It was a big hit with
the students and staff, and we have received much encouragement. It was such a success, that we have it planned again this year.
One of our goals besides events and tours is to increase membership. Official ASME membership helps fund our club and it's programs. We have a meeting usually once a month, and there is usually free pizza. At our
meetings we are really pushing involvement, especially in design competitions. We have
already seen a lot of interest from fellow students in the Student Professional
Our final goal is to make the department a better place than when we entered it. We are
going to achieve this through increasing student involvement, new events, and cooperation
with other student organizations. With our time, dedication, and energy this is a very
possible goal and its signs of plausibility have already shown.
