ASME strategic partner Engineers Without Borders-USA is currently seeking professional engineers to serve as mentors for the more than 250 student chapters in the United States.
If you are interested in sharing your technical skills with the engineers of tomorrow and making a real difference in the lives of people in developing countries throughout the world visit www.ewb-mentors.org/EWBMentor to learn more about how to become an EWB-USA professional mentor.
Last January, ASME and EWB-USA entered into an enhanced strategic partnership to benefit future joint initiatives and objectives. Now an EWB-USA Principal Partner, ASME began its collaboration with EWB-USA in 2003 when ASME served on the EWB-USA board of directors as the first society partner to provide dedicated resources to support the EWB-USA mission. Today, both organizations share similar strategic interests, including the development of the engineering workforce, making an impact on global needs and contributing to renewable energy initiatives.
As a result of this partnership, ASME members are now entitled to a 20 percent discount on membership dues when they join EWB-USA. ASME members can may now join EWB-USA as a Professional Member for $80 ($20 off the regular cost), or as Supporting Member for $60 (a $15 savings).

There is no denying that nanotechnology is an exciting field, with applications and potential discoveries that will surely change our world. ASME realizes this and has developed a series of introductory podcasts designed specifically for engineers not currently working in the nano world. The ASME Nano Educational Series was created to provide you with a comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals and applications of nanotechnology. In other words, these podcasts are informative, and yet easy to understand. Best of all, they are free!
Each of these video or audio podcasts is only 4 to 8 minutes long and they are taught by leading engineers and researchers from around the world. There are more than 20 podcasts already available and new ones are being added every two weeks.Â Thousands of engineers have already taken advantage of this ASME benefit and their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
