ASME 2014 International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition

The annual ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition is the premier global conference that focuses on today's technical challenges, research updates and breakthrough innovations that are shaping the future of engineering. The Congress convenes engineers, academics, scientists and technologists of all disciplines for the purposes of exploring solutions to global challenges and for the advancement of engineering excellence worldwide.

"Engineering for Global Development" Chosen as Theme for the ASME 2014 Congress

Engineers have long contributed to human progress by solving complex challenges on a global scale. Many of these challenges are found in developing and emerging markets, particularly as they relate to critical infrastructures, such as access to energy, clean water, effective sanitation and healthcare. Rapid population growth and the global pursuit of sustainability are creating new demands for engineers who can design products, services and infrastructure to improve the quality of life for the billions living in poverty. Engineering for Global Development (EGD), a programs area within ASME, enhances the multidisciplinary research and collaboration needed to establish the delivery mechanisms for emerging and appropriate technologies. IMECE 2014 will present a platform that focuses on the critical research being conducted in global development and the positive impact it is making around the world.

Register to Watch the Keynote Event - Nov. 17th at 8:10 a.m.
Billions across the developing world do not have access to the most basic infrastructures, such as clean water, energy, agriculture and medicine.  The engineering of affordable, appropriate and sustainable solutions – combined with building the capacity of local communities and partnering with industry to bring these technologies to market – has more potential to improve and transform the human condition worldwide than conventional aid models.  Engineering for Global Development (EGD) is a strategic priority for ASME and a tremendous opportunity for engaging the engineering community in improving the quality of life for those living in poverty.  From exploring market-based solutions, expanding the EGD curriculum on college campuses worldwide and engagement with a growing online community on the Engineering for Change global platform, EGD has established itself as a legitimate market and discipline.

Honors Assembly
All Congress participants are cordially invited to attend the 2014 ASME Honors Assembly. This multimedia program will celebrate some of today's leading engineers, educators, entrepreneurs and innovators. Admission is FREE to all Congress attendees. Video Invitation from ASME President Bob Sims
Special Plenary Sessions
Sikorsky Aircraft has accepted and tackled some of the biggest engineering challenges. Learn from Chris Van Buiten, Vice President of Sikorsky Innovations at Sikorsky Aircraft, as he shares a look at Sikorsky's history of innovation through today's work creating next-generation technologies including X2, active rotor, and Autonomy, as well as defining next-generation products.

Industry Presentations

The 2014 Congress will hold a special series of Industry Presentations. Nov. 18-20, on topics ranging from the extension of the natural gas envelope on Rolls-Royce industrial engines, to the future of business and commercial aviation. Mathieu Boisclair, is Chief of Strategic Technology Program Office at Bombardier Aerospace will present on "Bombardier Strategic Technology: The Future of Business and Commercial Aviation" More details.

Engineering for Global Development Forum

The EGD Forum on Monday, Nov. 17, includes case studies and discussions that illustrate the fundamental concepts of global development, such as the user-centric design process, cultural challenges, field testing of working prototypes and the critical roles academia, industry and local communities play in building the necessary (and appropriate) foundation needed to succeed in this space. Featured experts from GE Healthcare - India, USAID, MIT, among others will share their insight. Read more.
