ASME - Milwaukee Annual Student Night 

 February 10, 2016

Register Now!


 This month, we will have our annual Student Night event at the Todd Wehr Conference Center located in the Campus Center of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. We have invited our local student chapters (in District C) to give presentations on their respective ASME activities. The night will give an opportunity to socialize with students, have dinner with them, and hear presentations from several schools.


MSOE’S goals of the Mechanical Engineering program are to:

  • produce mechanical engineering graduates with a strong theoretical and applications background, whose analytical, design and laboratory experiences make them attractive to industry and capable of advanced study in engineering
  • produce well-rounded engineers who view engineering as a profession with social and ethical responsibilities
  • provide an intimate learning environment, with personal involvement of faculty with significant industrial experience 

MSOE’S Educational Objectives 

Based on  these goals, the educational objectives of the Mechanical Engineering program are to produce engineering graduates who will:
  • use their educations to become productive, contributing professionals in their chosen field.
  • demonstrate initiative in their professional activities.
  • show continued professional development.
  • understand the impact of their professional activities on society.

Marquette University

Marquette’s undergraduate program in mechanical engineering was established in 1908, and the master of science and doctoral programs were added in 1961 and 1984, respectively.

Approximately 260 undergraduate students are majoring in mechanical engineering. About 60 percent of the junior and seniors are enrolled in the Co-operative Education Program. Total graduate enrollment is about 50 students.

The educational and research programs of the department are directed by 16 full-time regular faculty, who are assisted by about 10 active emeriti, adjunct and research professors. Four of the 16 full-time regular mechanical engineering faculty are fellows of ASME, and another is a fellow of ASME International. Still others have received various national and international recognition.

University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

Mechanical engineering is one of the most general fields in engineering, thus allowing the engineer the freedom to deal with virtually any aspect of the multi-faceted engineering process, e.g., design, development, analysis, production and testing. The broad nature of the field also provides opportunities for working in various areas of interest ranging from energy conversion or environmental control to producing transportation and construction equipment. Mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee (UWM) is committed to providing a practical, applications-oriented graduate education while simultaneously emphasizing scholarly work through research. The active, well-funded research programs in our department make for a flexible and productive learning environment for graduate students.

Michigan Tech

Alumni and Faculty of the Michigan Tech Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics Department have contributed to the modern world in so many ways. From inventions to patents, innovative men and women are the hallmark of the Michigan Tech. programs.

The vision of the Mechanical Engineering department is to be nationally recognized as having one of the best undergraduate and graduate programs in the nation. Based on the quality and balance of its undergraduate and graduate programs and research, Michigan Tech. hopes to be a department of choice by prospective students, parents, faculty, staff, corporate donors, and corporate employers worldwide.

Consistent with this mission, and in order to prepare our students for successful careers in engineering, the ME-EM Department maintains a strong mechanical engineering program with the following Program Educational Objectives:

  • Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Program will meet the expectations of employers.
  • The ME Program prepares qualified graduates to pursue advanced study, if desired.

 The University of Wisconsin - Madison

Graduates from the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program choose to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their undergraduate years to pursue a wide variety of career and life goals.  UW-Madison encourages this diversity of paths.  Independent of whether our graduates choose to pursue a professional career, postgraduate education, or volunteer service in engineering or a different field; UW-Madison expects that graduates will achieve the following objectives within three to five years after graduation:

  • They will exhibit a fundamental understanding of broader engineering disciplines with strong skills in mechanical engineering, problem solving, leadership, teamwork, and communication.
  • They will use these skills to contribute to their organizations and communities.
  • They will make thoughtful, well-informed decisions in their career and life.
  • They will demonstrate a continuing commitment to and interest in their own and other's education.
