On April 19, 2017, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) OU section elected their new officers for the 2017-2018 school year. Many of the busy mechanical and aerospace engineering members of ASME took time out of their schedules to participate in the election. There was a great variety of candidates who ran for positions and participated in many positive discussions. With great ambitions for growing the OU section next year, the candidates shared their ideas during the elections. After elections were completed, they immediately convened for a brief introductory meeting. OU ASME recently spent a great amount of effort over the past academic year to foster greater engagement and a higher involvement on campus. The new officers seek to heighten the presence of ASME both on a school and college level and hope to do more for its members. The new officer group hit the ground running with continuing events, including a tech talk with Chevron and joint study night with OU American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA).
