Pumpkin Launch

Every Fall, ASME hosts a pumpkin launch which allows students and their student groups to compete put their engineering skills to the test. Winners receive a trophy and bragging rights for who is the best engineering club on campus.

Any student and any organization are welcome to participate. In the past, clubs ranging from AIChE to SPS to Baja SAE and even groups from RIT have competed. All students and faculty are welcome to paint pumpkins and watch the event from a safe distance.

Patent Law Panel - Fall 2019

In a collaboration event with Mock Trial, ASME was able to bring three experienced patent attorneys to guide students through the patenting process and how to become a patent attorney. Plenty of opportunity was given for students to mingle and network with our speakers over hors d'oeuvres. We are very thankful for our amazing Mock Trial partner and our financial supporters, SA Government and the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship, to make this event "ever better."

ASME was awarded the 2018-19 Excellence in Programming Award by WCSA.

STEM Family Science Day - Spring 2017

In an effort to promote the sciences in young children, ASME likes to support the annual STEM Family Science Day every spring and its counterpart Spooky Science Day in the fall. This is a great volunteer experience for members who want to inspire the next generation of engineers.

Club Rochester - Spring 2020

ASME had a great time co-sponsoring WCSA's Club Rochester event. Here, students and staff were able to learn more about ASME and mechanical engineering while enjoying some good music, food, and drinks.

Annual MechE Roast

General Members Meetings

When not hosting larger events, ASME will host smaller general members meetings (GMMs). These meetings can cover an array of topics and activities ranging from updates on the Hopeman Building renovation, a resume drive-through, internship advice, research openings, and much more!

Student Night

Every year, the ASME chapters at UR and RIT go back and forth hosting a "Student Night" where the host chapter has in informal dinner with a guest speaker talking about a particular aspect of mechanical engineering. In the past, the UR chapter has hosted speakers such as Dr. Mike Campbell and Dr. Gilbert Rip-Collins who are repectively the director and senior researcher at the laser laboratory.

Boar's Head Dinner - Fall 2019

ASME likes to host a table and faculty member at the University's annual Boar's Head Dinner. The club was even able to get our very own Professor Muir to read off his interpretation of the Boar's Head story.
