NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2011 – ASME has entered an agreement with La Asociación Nacional de Estudiantes de Ingeniería, Mecánica, Mecatrónica, Eléctrica, y Ramas Afines (ANEIMERA) of Peru that aims to facilitate collaborations between the organizations in education, professional development, mentoring and training, and other areas.
The agreement creates a global partnership between ASME and ANEIMERA and allows the groups to work jointly on programs to enhance the engineering experience for students in Peru. According to a memorandum of understanding signed recently by the organizations, ANEIMERA will promote ASME student membership in universities in Peru; the Society, in turn, will discount student memberships and “consider ANEIMERA as a national partner when organizing student activities in Peru.”
Those activities include student conferences and design contests and competitions, according to the memorandum of understanding.
While increasing ASME student membership is the focus of the new ASME-ANEIMERA agreement, the organizations also have pledged to work together on professional development programs benefiting early-career engineers.
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to
real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables
collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering
disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME
codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional
development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge
and a safer world.
