As Contest Host
To Area Groups
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers strives to promote professional interest and fellowship
among its members through field
trips, dinner meetings and guest
Concentrating on the dissemination
of knowledge on theory and practices
in mechanical engineering, ASME also
sponsors technical paper contests.
In the spring ASME hosted the annual Quadrangular Paper Contest
which welcomed students from four
other chapters in the Southwest area.
To strengthen faculty-student relationships, ASME sponsored a faculty-senior football game.
Talks, films and field trips are the
major activities sponsored by the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
At its monthly meetings last year,
the student society took part in a
seminar on steam flooding and saw
films on offshore oil development and
fighting oil well fires.
Field trips were taken to Humble
Oil in Katy, Texas, Shell Oil and
Schlumberger in Houston.

technical paper contest. Last year representatives were sent to Louisiana
State University where the contest
judging was held.
