The University of New Haven draws students from many backgrounds. As a student, you will be given the opportunity to interact with people from many different areas of the United States and the world. This enriches your classroom experience and prepares you to work effectively with people from different cultures in our increasingly global society.
Student Chapter of ASME
Membership in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) student section is open to all mechanical engineering students in good standing and provides the opportunity for field trips to local industrial plants, attendance at technical presentations, social activities, and access to interesting professional literature.
Membership in the ASME allows students to partake in the national student ASME organization's career resources, publications, competitions and loan fund.
Information can be found at: http://www.asme.org/.
ASME officers for the 2011-2012 year are Joe Olenick, Chair; Dan Bennett, Vice-Chair; Kevin Jalbert, Treasurer; Victor Limauro, Secretary and Nick Chiaverini, Sergeant-at-Arms.
During the past few years, the ASME student section at the University of New Haven has held many social activities on campus. We hope to encourage friendships among mechanical engineering students at different levels with these events.
Every year, a spring picnic is held just before finals. Soda and snack fundraising efforts during the year generate sufficient resources to cover the spring picnic costs.
Students participate in professional seminars on campus and are welcome to attend the senior section activities.
Other Student Organizations
Students also participate in SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), especially in the context of the Supermileage Competition, and the Pi Tau Sigma Honor Society.
