The Engineering Community Unites Behind EngineeringCAS

EngineeringCAS currently partners with the following organizations dedicated to serving engineering students, programs and professions. Leaders from these organizations also serve in advisory capacities for EngineeringCAS and for Liaison as well.

Founded in 1893, the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) is a nonprofit organization of individuals and institutions committed to furthering education in engineering and engineering technology. It accomplishes this mission by promoting excellence in instruction, research, public service and practice; exercising worldwide leadership; fostering the technological education of society; and providing quality products and services to members.

“For ASEE members, EngineeringCAS simplifies the admissions process, ensuring that prospective students are aware of all the programs available to them and making it easy to apply to those that will best help a student meet his or her goals. In addition to its member benefit of freeing office staff to focus more on promoting student success, the service will offer insight into enrollment trends and the changing demographics of our applicant pools. With EngineeringCAS, we’ll be better prepared to build a diverse class of students, attracting and retaining those with the unique perspectives that will solve society’s most pressing issues.” - Norman Fortenberry, Sc. D., Executive Director, ASEE

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (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 130,000 members in 151 countries. Thirty-two thousand of these members are students.

“EngineeringCAS helps graduate programs have exposure to and awareness of a larger, more diverse pool of applicants domestically and internationally, with research aspirations that better align with the strenghts of the programs. Through it, we’ll advance the discipline by driving awareness of the programs and disseminating data that can be used to further evolve our field.” - Thomas G. Loughlin, Former Executive Director, ASME
