Charlotte, North Carolina is the largest city in North Carolina and has long been known as a center for banking and finance, but is fast becoming the center for manufacturing activity in the state. It is the home of some of the largest companies in the energy sector and is becoming the "Energy Hub" of the U.S. The UNC Charlotte main campus is located about 10 miles northeast of the city center.
The 2015 conference schedule will include keynote and technical presentations, expert panels, student poster presentations, an exhibition of industry partners, an early career forum, UNC Charlotte lab tours, an awards banquet, luncheons and more.
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.
SME is an organization for individuals, students, educators and companies involved in all facets of manufacturing.
