Mark this Date: Saturday, March 21
Your unparalleled opportunity to expand your professional network! 

Too often students graduate from university seeking a satisfying career but never really think about ways to enhance that career. Most often they are not aware of the benefits a professional society can provide them.  The Young Engineers Forum is a chance for students and young engineers to come together in an informal setting to discuss professional development and career options as well as providing opportunities to ask questions to industry professionals. 

This year, the ASME Young Engineers Forum (Toronto) will take place at the University of Toronto downtown campus on March 21.  A full-day program consisting of panel discussions, keynote speakers, and social activities give you the opportunity to exchange ideas, network, and explore new perspectives of fellow students and professionals.
