Day 2 of ASME E-Fest Asia Pacific just got completed at LNMIIT Jaipur, the host of one of the world’s largest technical festivals. The festival, going by the name of E-fest Asia Pacific under the banner of ASME is being held from March 3 to March 5, 2017. ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), an international organization has this year, given an opportunity to LNMIIT to host its brand value festival E-fest in Asia-Pacific region other than two occurring in United States.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a professional association that, in its own words, "promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe" via "continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach.” ASME is thus an engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, a provider of training and education, and a non-profit organization. Founded as an engineering society focused on mechanical engineering in North America, ASME is today multidisciplinary and global.
