Oct. 20, 2017


ASME member Emamul Haque, the 2015-2016 ASME Early Career Leadership Intern Program to Serve Engineering (ECLIPSE) intern to the Board of Governors, was the guest of honor and featured speaker at a special Engineer’s Day event last month at University of Petroleum & Energy Studies in Dehradun, India.

ASME member Emamul Haque was invited to be the guest of honor at an event commemorating Engineer’s Day in India that was held at the University of Petroleum & Energy Studies (UPES) in Dehradun, India, on Sept. 25.

Haque, who served as the 2015-2016 ASME Early Career Leadership Intern Program to Serve Engineering (ECLIPSE) intern to the Board of Governors, was also the featured speaker during the special Engineer’s Day orientation session, which was arranged by the UPES ASME student section.

Nearly 130 students and faculty filled the university’s auditorium to listen to Haque’s presentation, “Quality Mechanical Engineering: Transforming the World through Technology,” in which Haque discussed the disparity between what engineering students learn in school and the skills that are required in industry once they graduate, as well as how ASME can help provide students and early career engineers with opportunities to acquire these necessary skills.

After his speech, which included a lengthy Q&A session with the audience, Haque met with the students and faculty from the university at an ASME information booth that had been set up for the occasion. The booth attracted a crowd of students and faculty members, according to Haque. By the end of the event, more than 90 students and 12 UPES professors had registered to become members of ASME.
