ASME IIT ROORKEE, STUDENT SECTION
ASME IIT Roorkee Chapter, the first and leading chapter of ASME in India, was officially registered as a society in Feb 2007 by some enthusiastic students of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Department (MIED). Since then, the section has been working continuously towards providing the students of the campus a better insight to technology and exposure to practical work through various events round the year. The section has also played key role in promoting ASME in India by helping a number of colleges establish ASME Student Section in their campuses. The efforts of the section were appreciated in very first year of operation by declaring it the best ASME section in India. Also, the visionary leadership helped the section become the first section outside USA to be awarded prestigious Diversity Action Grant (DAG). A team of ASME IIT Roorkee also participated in Efficycle'10 (a HPV Competition) and won the Utility & Maneuverability Award. With about 250 members and an enthusiastic leadership, the section is determined to achieve greater heights in future.
