ASME President Marc W. Goldsmith, speaking at an international conference in Beijing, said educators around the world must share ideas and innovations to ensure that graduating engineers are always ready to step into productive roles in industry.
Goldsmith spoke in December at the International Mechanical Engineering Education Summit. Well over 200 educators and industry representatives participated from across China, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The Summit was co-sponsored by ASME, the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (CMES) and the United Kingdom's Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE).
ASME's delegation included Allan Kirkpatrick of Colorado State University, Patricia Brackin of Georgia Institute of Technology, Imtiaz Haque of Clemson University, and Thomas Perry and Michael Michaud, both of ASME.
Goldsmith made these comments during an interview with China Central Television (CCTV).
