Date: June 18-22, 2018
Location: Texas A&M University | College Station, TX
Texas A&M University would like to welcome the co-located ASME International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC) 2018 and the 46th NAMRI/SME North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC).
Join more than 800 researchers and manufacturers from around the world to share the latest manufacturing innovations and developments in manufacturing and cyber-physical systems and materials processing.
The Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME sponsors the Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC) every June. MSEC is the foremost annual forum for the scholarly exchange of advanced manufacturing research knowledge. It is intended to disseminate the most recent developments in manufacturing research through technical presentations, poster sessions, and panel sessions.
Since 2011, MSEC has been co-located with NAMRI/SME’s North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC). Together, these co-located conferences represent the largest advanced manufacturing research conference in North America. These conferences attract more than 500 attendees who can avail themselves of more than 250 technical presentations, multiple panel discussions, poster sessions, lab and industry tours, workshops, and an early career forum. MSEC, in conjunction with NAMRC, typically includes more than 80 students (from U.S. institutions) who are presenting their research and looking for career opportunities.
MSEC is the place to learn about the latest manufacturing research, talk with the researchers pushing the frontiers, network with R&D experts, and meet the future R&D workforce.
ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries.
For more than 100 years, ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity assessment programs, training courses, and journals.
ASME also produces nearly 40 international conferences. These industry-leading events feature advanced research and technical content spanning a range of industries impacted by mechanical engineering, including energy production, energy sources, advanced manufacturing, and engineering sciences.
