The Penn State Mechanical Engineering Society is an organization of Penn State mechanical engineering alumni and friends of the mechanical engineering program. The purpose of this Society is to promote fellowship and communication among the alumni, faculty and students of the Mechanical Engineering Program in order to work for the improvement of the program, the Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department, and the College of Engineering.
HOW IS PSMES ORGANIZED?
PSMES is governed by a Board of Directors that is made up of mechanical engineering alumni who hold the elected positions of the Society officers: President, Vice-President, and Secretary/Treasurer and six to nine At Large members. The Department Head of the Mechanical engineering program and a Mechanical engineering faculty member also serve on the Board of Directors.
HOW DO I BECOME AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF PSMES?
All living graduates of Penn State's mechanical engineering program can become a member and there are no dues or fees. To become a member please complete the membership form online (become a member).
Penn State graduates who are not mechanical engineering graduates but desire to become a member of PSMES can do so by either self-nomination or by nomination by a member. When appropriate, the Board of Directors may designate non-alumni as Honorary Members in recognition of acknowledged eminence in some area of engineering or who have rendered outstanding service to the mechanical engineering program.
If you want to become actively involved in organizing or participating in the activities of the PSMES, or have any questions, please contact Dianne Crust by telephone at 814-865-2510 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
